Description of CVI Expertise

CVI Program Unit Administrator:
Thrombosis / Hemostasis

CVI Program Unit(s):
Thrombosis / Hemostasis

CVI Research Description:
Interested in thrombosis and hemostasis, vascular biology, the development of atherosclerosis, and megakaryopoiesis. My studies are mostly on platelets, platelet chemokines, platelet integrins and gene regulation in megakaryopoiesis. I am a pediatric hematologist by training.
