I study the development of blood vessels (angiogenesis) during cancer progression using optoacoustic imaging and the effect of anti-angiogenic treatments on pro-angiogenic pathways such as hypoxia, inflammation and oxidative stress. Our final goal is to increase the current knowledge about resistance to anti-angiogenic therapy in breast cancer.
