Research in our Open Lab during this year has been dedicated to translational medicine that aims to expedite the discovery of new diagnostic tools and treatments by using a multi-disciplinary, highly collaborative, "bench-to-bedside" approach. We are specialized in the field of thrombosis which is local coagulation or clotting of the blood in a part of the circulatory system. Thrombosis is one of the hottest problems in clinical medicine. When a thrombus is large enough to reduce the blood flow to a tissue, oxygen deprivation can lead to infarction or tissue death.
Master project and subprojects in 2016
Project 1: Prognosis and diagnosis of pre-thrombotic states and thrombosis in autoimmune diseases
Project 2: Cellular composition of thrombi and impaired remodeling (contraction) of blood clots in thrombotic states
