During angiogenesis, endothelial cell migration is coordinated by integrin‐mediated contact with the extra‐cellular matrix (ECM), coupled with receptor tyrosine kinase signalling to regulate dynamic cytoskeletal and plasma membrane reorganization. A recent paper by Vitorino et al ([2015][1]) defined a new MAP4K4–moesin–talin–β1‐integrin pathway that could be therapeutically exploited to suppress pathologic angiogenesis.\r
