After an extended delay (through the ups and downs of a fight against cancer), I’m delighted to share that the manuscript “Astrocyte-intrinsic and extrinsic Fat1 activities regulate astrocyte development and angiogenesis in the retina” is finally accepted in Development (in press 2022) | doi:10.1242/dev.192047. | PDF: FAT1-RETINA Development in press | biorxiv (2020) |.

This study uncovers astrocyte-intrinsic and extrinsic Fat1 activities that influence astrocyte migration polarity, proliferation and maturation, the disruption of which impacts retinal vascular development and maintenance of vascular architecture.
