Whiteford Lab


Our group focuses on the process by which new blood vessels form, angiogenesis. This is a vital process in development and wound healing, but is also a feature of many diseases such as cancer, rheumatoid arthritis and many eye diseases. 

We are trying to develop novel approaches to block this process with a view to deriving new treatments for diseases such as Wet Age Related Macular Degeneration
