Faculty member at Morningside College co-authors chapter in book
Aaron Bunker, assistant professor of biology at Morningside College, co-authored a chapter recently published in the book “Type 2 Diabetes” edited by Kazuko Masuo.
Bunker co-authored the chapter “Insulin Resistance and Endothelial Dysfunction: Macro and Microangiopathy” with faculty members from the University of Missouri-Columbia, Duke University Medical Center and the University of Texas at Tyler. The chapter discusses the relationship between the insulin-resistance that can occur with Type 2 Diabetes and the damage to blood vessels that insulin resistance can cause. The chapter also reviews the beneficial effects of exercise on preventing insulin resistance.
Bunker was invited to co-author the chapter after his publication in the book “Recent Advances in the Pathogenesis, Prevention and Management of Type 2 Diabetes and its Complications” edited by Mark Zimering.
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.
