Description

We study coagulopathies associated with trauma, including such states as hypothermia, acidosis, and hemodilution. Emphasis is placed on the study of pharmacologic manipulation of the hemostatic mechanism. Both in vivo and in vitro experiments are conducted. In vivo work involves animal models of uncontrolled hemorrhage in rats and swine, while in vitro work includes flow cytometry, platelet aggregometry, coagulation function assays, and many others. Research will be performed in extensive, modern, state-of-the-art laboratory and animal research facilities with highly trained veterinary and laboratory support staff. Publication is highly encouraged. There are many opportunities to learn and develop new methodologies.
