Research Interests

  • In vitro platelet signal transduction investigations related to hemostasis and thrombosis using knock out mice as model systems

  • In vivo evaluation of the physiological significance of signal transduction pathway information obtained from invitro studies

  • Evolution of ligand receptor and signal transduction requirements for stable thrombus formation in vivo in arteries and veins

  • Characterization of outside-in signaling mediated by the individual subunits of the major platelet integrin alphallb/beta3

  • Development of a model system for the reproducubile induction of venous thromboembolism (VTE) under quasi physiological conditions for the subsequent evaluation of ligand receptor and signal transduction requirements for VTE.
