Shepherd Laboratory

Welcome to the Shepherd Laboratory website. We are located in the Department of Pharmacology at the University of Colorado Denver Anschutz Medical Campus.

We are a group of interdisciplinary researchers interested in developing and applying new optical tools to understand the role that vascular progenitor cellular heterogeneity plays in the developing brain and lung. We are particularly focused on how vascular progenitor cellular heterogeneity evolves in response to environmental changes or pharmacological intervention.
