Leading vascular research through ground-breaking discoveries and innovative challenges










Center for Vascular Research

Institute for Basic Science at the KAIST Campus

Our Activities

Our vision is to make ground-breaking discoveries, conceptual advances and paradigm shifts in vascular biology through basic and fundamental research


  • Explore organotypic EC heterogeneity, angiogenesis, vascular remodeling and vascular niche

  • Identify novel key regulators and clarify their mechanisms in the interaction between endothelial cells and pericytes

  • Explore organotypic lymphangiogenesis, lymphatic remodeling and regression and lymphatic functions

  • Identify cardioblasts and clarify their characteristics and effective applications for cardiac regeneration

  • Undertake creative approaches and develop innovative methods for angiogenesis, lymphangiogenesis, vascular remodeling, and cardiogenesis
