The Vasculome: From Many, One introduces the fundamental bases of the “unity in diversity” of the Vasculome, from the coming together of various cell lineages during development, to its deceptively simple solution for architectural design: the efficient interplay of a few types of building blocks supporting key similar functions throughout the body and their highly specialized functional local variations. Specific examples are included to illustrate how the Vasculome is integral to the function and malfunction of different organs, such as the brain or the kidney.

Each section is preceded by an introductory summary that will give a high level unified view of the key concepts illustrated in the various chapters in that section.

Zorina Galis' The Vasculome was named a finalist in the Clinical Medicine category of the American Association of Publishers’ 2023 PROSE Awards.
