Dr Claudine Bonder

Centre for Cancer Biology, SA Pathology

Claudine studies the intricate network of blood vessels that carry cells throughout our body. Her laboratory works with endothelial cells, the cells that line the blood vessels, and uses leading technology to better understand their role in normal and disease states.

Claudine’s vision of identifying and then targeting what controls vascular development seeks to eliminate  the vasculogenesis associated  with the two major killers in the Western world, cancer and cardiovascular disease, coming closer to the availability of long lasting therapies and perhaps a cure.
