Asrar Malik, PhD, is the Schweppe Family Distinguished Professor in the Department of Pharmacology and Regenerative Medicine at UIC. He and his lab are focused in three related areas. A major interest is to understand the regulation of the barrier properties of endothelial and epithelial cells. His laboratory studies the events that occur at the level of receptors and the signaling pathways that regulate the barrier function of these monolayers.The lab also is developing and testing novel strategies for drug delivery, with specific interest in targeting cells of the vessel wall which are critical in the pathogenesis of inflammatory diseases, atherosclerosis and cancer metastasis. Additionally, they are studying mechanisms of regeneration of injured vessels, specifically through lineage tracing studies of endothelial cells.
