The International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) recognized Professor of Pathology Maureane Hoffman, MD, PhD, with an Esteemed Career Award, which they announced in July during the Opening Ceremony at the ISTH 2023 Congress in Montréal, Canada.
ISTH Esteemed Career Awards are presented each year to five individuals whose career contributions have significantly advanced the scientific community’s understanding or treatment of diseases and disorders that affect hemostasis – the body’s ability to control bleeding. The recipients are nominated by their peers and are selected following a competitive review process.
Hoffman’s research is directed toward understanding basic mechanisms in hemostasis, and the connections between inflammation/immunity and coagulation responses to injury. Her accomplishments are internationally regarded as exemplary models of research, clinical practice and mentoring excellence.
Her lab has developed a cell-based model of tissue factor-initiated coagulation and examined the role of the coagulation process in wound healing. Their aim is to define the extent and time frame of hemostatic function that is needed for optimal healing, to set the stage for scientifically-based strategies for anticoagulation.
