Summary The book represents a paradigm shift from the traditional static model of investigation of oxidative biology to the dynamic model of vascular oxidative stress. The investigation of vascular biology and cardiovascular medicine is made possible by the use of fluid dynamics, molecular signaling, genomic approach, tissue engineering, stem cell biology, and microfluidics. This is the first book to target a wide readership from academia to industry and government agencies in the field of cardiovascular diseases.
