Research
Marin Vratonjic

The purpose of my research is to determine the effects of temporal and spatial hemodynamic shear stress gradients on the genetic changes in arterial endothelial cells that contribute to the onset of diseases (stenoses). The work will be an experimental investigation in which cells are imaged whilst simultaneously capturing the near-wall flow structure.
