Mechanical Engineer Studies Flow of Blood Vessels Related to Diabetes and Resulting Heart Disease
People with diabetes develop early and severe heart disease, specifically atherosclerosis, a condition in which plaque builds up inside the arteries. Alisa Clyne, a mechanical engineer by training, wants to better understand the biomechanics of this process. The National Science Foundation-funded scientist specifically is studying the behavior of endothelial cells, which form the inner layer of blood vessels, and which “sense the mechanics of their environment and respond to it,” she says.
