Dr. Jeffrey Wigle cloned and characterized a novel family of membrane proteins in his PhD work. During his postdoctoral fellowship, he determined that a gene, Prox1, was essential for the development of the lymphatic vessels in a mouse model. His current interests are in the transcriptional control of the process of cardiac fibrosis.
