1. 13SDG16910050 from AHA Gong H (PI) 07/01/13-06/30/17
Galpha13 Switch Signals Disassembly of Adherens Junctions and Increase Endothelial Permeability
This project focuses on characterizing the mechanisms of Galpha13 in disassembly VE-cadherin-based adherence junctions via Src activation.
2. 5 R01 HL45638-27 Malik AB (PI) Gong H (Co-investigator) 04/01/14-3/31/19
Regulation of Endothelial Junction Stabilization and Lung Edemagenesis in Sepsis
The focus of this work is on the lung endothelium, in which the studies will establish the relevance of hypoxia inducible factors, HIF1α and HIF2α and the upstream prolyl hydroxylases, in the pathophysiology of ALI/ARDS. We will define whether activation of HIF through inhibition of PHDs, potentially druggable targets, are a fundamental adaptive mechanism that restore endothelial barrier function and prevent lung edema in the context of lung inflammation and ALI/ARDS.
3. 5 P01 HL 060678-15 Malik AB (PI) Gong H (Co-investigator) 03/01/16-02/28/21
Project 1: Transcellular Mechanisms of Endothelial Permeability and Pulmonary Edema
This project focuses on characterizing the mechanisms involved in the movement of solutes and fluids
through endothelial cells by transcytosis.
4. 1R01HL128359-01. Tiruppathi C (PI) Gong H (Co-investigator) 07/01/15-06/30/19
Endothelial Cell Deubiquitinase A20 Signals Repair of Lung Vascular Injury
The major goals of this project are to study the role of endothelial cell-expressed ubiquitin editing
enzyme A20 in regulating the expression of VE-cadherin and VE-PTP at endothelial cell-cell junction
and thereby restoring endothelial barrier integrity.
5. 5 R01 HL090152-09 Malik (PI) Gong H (Co-investigator) 07/01/16-06/30/21
iPSC-derived Endothelial Progenitor Cell Treatment of Lung Vascular Injury
The major goal of the project is to test the feasibility of using iPSC-derived endothelial progenitor cells
(EPCs) alone or in combination with hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) to restore lung endothelial barrier
function and regeneration of lung vessels after lung injury induced by sepsis.
