Research

Hemophilia is a severe chronic bleeding disorder that leads to multiple long term complications. My research focuses on investigating risk factors that influence the development of such complications as inhibitor development and low bone density. Ultimately improved understanding of risk factors for inhibitor development may lead to strategies to reduce the risk development or improve eradication once an inhibitor has developed.
