Haemostasis Research Division

The Haemostasis Division performs research in the field of atherothrombosis in attempt to characterize its molecular pathomechanism culminating in cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, which continue to be a major public health concern worldwide. The work in the division focuses on the enzymological evaluation of proteases involved in the dissolution of thrombi. A second area of interest is the interactions of blood vessel wall components and blood cells, which contribute to the formation and stabilization of intravascular thrombi. A major goal of the research is the identification of molecular targets, which allow development of thrombolytic strategies with higher efficiency than the therapeutic approaches available at present.
