My research focuses on the treatment or prevention of blood clots in the veins. We participate in many large multicenter prospective clinical trials in the treatment, prevention, or other study of patients with these conditions. We also evaluate the use of blood coagulation tests as a means of monitoring these patients, and evaluating the effectiveness of their treatment, or their risk of developing this disease.
