University of Washington bioengineers Ying Zheng and Cole DeForest, working with Seattle Children’s infectious disease researchers, have engineered tiny blood vessels and shed light on how severe malaria infection causes red blood cells to get stuck in the bloodstream’s narrowest passageways. Their paper is published in the Jan. 17 issue of Science Advances.
