  • the role of proteoglycans in determining mechanical behavior of lung tissue
  • hyaluronan and its receptors in wound healing, inflammation, vasculogenesis, and angiogenesis
  • the impact of small proteoglycans on matrix assembly
  • versican as a modulator of cell adhesion, migration, and proliferation
  • antiproliferative activity of heparin and its derivatives on pulmonary artery smooth muscle cells
  • the effects of mechanical strain on proteoglycans
  • the functions of proteoglycans in the vascular wall
