Endothelial cells form the inner lining of the vessel wall and provide a barrier between circulating blood and the underlying tissue. The endothelium participates in maintenance of vascular homeostasis and facilitates rapid responses to environmental changes such as inflammation or vascular damage. A cocktail of bioactive components participating in these processes are stored in endothelial-specific organelles, designated Weibel-Palade bodies (WPBs). Dorothee van Breevoort aims to obtain a better understanding of the composition of WPBs and the molecular mechanisms that regulate the release of WPB components into the bloodstream.
