Blog Post Image: Computer Simulation of Blood Vessel Growth

University of Utah bioengineers Jeff Weiss and Lowell Edgar look at a display screen showing a microscope image of a tiny blood vessel fragment (green) surrounded by collagen matrix (red). They have developed a computer simulation of blood vessel growth that represents a step toward better understanding of cancer metastasis and better treatments for diseases like diabetes and heart attack in which blood supply is affected.
