Our research focuses on the broad area of vascular changes in disease and tissue regeneration.  We have developed a niche area in advanced imaging (scarce skill in South Africa) of investigating the three-dimensional (3-D) relationships between different physiological systems (i.e. neural, vascular, interstitial, and surrounding cellular milieu) that could shed light on understanding the mechanisms that underpin the functional vascular architecture in disease and during healing/tissue regeneration.
