Research Interests
Thrombosis and vascular healing responses are being evaluated in animal models to identify key hemostatic mechanisms, blood component interactions with natural and synthetic surfaces and the effects of blood-flow phenomena. Our ultimate goals are to develop more effective antithrombotic and antiarteriosclerotic drug therapies, and to improve the performance of prosthetic cardiovascular devices.
