2007-2009: interaction between Drm/Gremlin and heparan sulphates of endothelial cells.
2009-2012: involvement of sialic acid in integrin-dependent endothelial activation in response to HIV-1 Tat.
2012-present: involvement of sialic acid in VEGFR2-dependent endothelial activation in response to  VEGF.
