Research Interests

Our laboratory studies mechanisms of hemostasis.

This work led to the development of a cell-based model of coagulation that is more physiologically relevant than the earlier "cascade” model.   We have used cell-based conceptual and experimental models to understand mechanisms by which drugs can enhance hemostasis and prevent thrombosis, with a goal of designing better therapeutic strategies.  In addition, we are studying how products of the coagulation process influence inflammatory/immune responses, angiogenesis and tissue repair.
