Bioengineering graduate student studies how neural progenitor cells communicate

Artist rendition of distal lung tissue, specifically the alveoli, highlights the architectural challenge. Alveoli sacs fill with air during inspiration and have alternating convex and concave topography. These complicated structures are completely ensheathed in vasculature, and their diffusion-based interactions with blood over short distances leads to efficient gas transport. Image by iStockPhoto
