Research Statement:

We investigate the role(s) of adhesion molecules (in particular the beta3 integrin & GPIb alpha complexes) involved in clot formation & their implications for hemostasis (incl. bleeding disorders) & thrombotic diseases (ie heart attack & stroke). We study allo- & autoimmune diseases related to bleeding disorders such as immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) & fetal & neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenic purpura (FNAIT).
