Role of fibrinogen and platelets in liver regeneration

March 26, 2020

My work focuses on both clinical and more fundamental aspects on the interface between hematology, hepatology, and surgery. Projects that I worked on included the role of the VWF/ADAMTS13 axis in thrombotic complications following hepatopancreaticobiliairy surgery, hemostatic changes in patients with liver diseases and the role of coagulation proteins in liver regeneration. Currently, I am working in the lab of dr. Luyendyk at Michigan State University as a research associate. My long-term goal is to understand the interconnection between the hemostatic system and liver disease, specifically to identify how liver damage alters the hemostatic profile and how these modifications can have both a protective or pathogenic role in liver disease.
