Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

Funding for Hemostasis & Thrombosis Research

Thrombotic disorders, a result of the inappropriate activation of the hemostatic system, remain major causes of morbidity and mortality in the United States. Cancer, cardiovascular disease, trauma, and many of the other causes of death in the U.S. frequently culminate in a fatal thrombotic event. Notably, thromboembolic disease affects 500,000 people annually and leads to 100,000 deaths in the United States alone. Current... more »

Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

What new methods of platelet preparation, processing, and storage are needed for hemostasis in various clinical conditions?

The limitations of 5-day 22˚ C storage significantly impacts platelet availability. It is critical that we develop new methods of collection, processing, storage to extend the storage time of platelets, and evaluate the use of whole blood. The attributes of these products must be understood to optimally alignment product attributes, clinical efficacy and safety with hemostatic needs in a variety of clinical states. Specifically,... more »

Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

Mechanisms of Uterine Hemostasis

What are the mechanisms of uterine hemostasis?
Endogenous mechanisms of uterine hemostasis protect women from the bleeding challenges of miscarriage, childbirth, and menstruation. Dysregulation of these mechanisms has implications for the critical public health problems of hormonally-induced venous thromboembolism and hormonally-induced arterial thromboembolism (myocardial infarction and stroke). Our current understanding... more »
