Jennifer T. Durham, Howard K. Surks, Brian M. Dulmovits, Ira M. Herman. Pericyte Contractility Controls Endothelial Cell Cycle Progression and Sprouting: Insights into Angiogenic Switch Mechanics.  American Journal of Physiology - Cell Physiology. Published 1 November 2014 Vol. 307 no. 9, C878-C892 DOI: 10.1152/ajpcell.00185.2014.

This podcast is based on a discussion between EIC Professor Josephine C. Adams (University of Bristol, UK) and Dr. Jennifer T. Durham, the winner of the AJP-Cell 2014 Paper of the Year award, and her mentor Professor Ira M. Herman (both from Tufts University, Boston, Massachusetts).

What is the role of pericytes in microvascular function in development or disease? This podcast explores the major findings of the 2014 AJP-Cell Physiology Paper of the Year "Pericyte contractility controls endothelial cell cycle progression and sprouting: insights into angiogenic switch mechanics."  The authors explain how this research represents a paradigm shift in understanding mechanisms by which pericytes modulate endothelial cell functions. The authors and Editor-in-Chief also discuss possible future clinical prospects and Dr. Durham shares her top tips for other post-doctorate researchers on carrying out a complex project.
