MSCs and endothelial cells

Endothelial cells exhibit broad heterogeneity  and have the capacity to dedifferentiate into multipotent mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in vitro and in vivo. Claire's studies have found that mesenchymal stems cells  from different sources interact in a unique fashion upon contact with endothelial cells. She is currently investigating the mechanisms involved in driving such effects and acquirement of such knowledge could help improve procedures involving the use of MSCs clinically e.g.  tissue/ organ  transplantation and tissue regeneration.
