Research Summary

The research currently underway in the Hemostasis Research Program, Division of Hematology/Oncology, focuses on two major areas spanning the fields of cardiovascular biology, cancer research, and post-transcriptional regulation of Tissue Factor (TF) expression.

The first area comprises the studies examining the biologic functions of TF splice variants in the vasculature, and their contribution to such disease states as cardiovascular thrombosis, malignant tumor progression, and their combination – a common occurrence in certain forms of cancer. The second area comprises the studies of post-transcriptional regulation of TF expression in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC), known to extensively utilize alternative splicing mechanisms to carry out a large variety of functions.
