Professor Morton Friedman's research interests focus on the modeling of biological transport processes and the role of mechanical forces in the localization and evolution of vascular disease. Specific areas of past research are the influence of adaptation on vascular biology and physiology, the influence of shear stress gradients and harmonic content on the vascular endothelium, and the influence of coronary artery geometry and dynamics on plaque formation and rupture.
