Aaron Bunker, assistant professor of biology at Morningside College, co-authored a chapter recently published in the book “Recent Advances in the Pathogenesis, Prevention and Management of Type 2 Diabetes and its Complications” edited by Dr. Mark Zimering.
Bunker co-authored the chapter “Effects of Type 2 Diabetes on Arterial Endothelium” with Arturo A. Arce-Esquivel and M. Harold Laughlin, faculty members at the University of Missouri-Columbia. The chapter explains what happens when Type 2 Diabetes leads to endothelial dysfunction. The endothelium is the innermost layer of blood vessels, and it ensures an adequate blood supply to various tissues.
Bunker joined the faculty at Morningside College in the fall of 2010. He has a doctorate in biomedical sciences with a minor in college teaching from the University of Missouri-Columbia.
The book is free online and open to the public at the following address: www.intechopen.com/articles/show/title/effects-of-type-2-diabetes-on-arterial-endothelium
