Morss Clyne Receives $1.9 million R01 Grant from the NIH

In a perfect world, blood vessels would run straight as freeways, channeling blood consistently and efficiently through the human body. Instead, they switch directions or branch off like country paths as they wend through the circulatory system, and each of those junctures impacts blood flow. In turn, blood flow impacts, among other things, the way glucose is metabolized in vascular cells, with implications for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and other vascular pathologies. Scientists don’t know exactly why this occurs.
