Arka is interested in understanding the role played by mechanical forces in the incidence and progression of Acute Lung Injury [1],[2], a medical condition characterized by fluid leaking across the blood-gas barrier which separates the alveoli and its surrounding capillaries. He is using novel engineering techniques to investigate the responses of endothelial monolayers under static and dynamic conditions.
