Haematology Research.

Our mission is to discover new mechanisms of clot formation

which can lead to the development of more efficient and safer antithrombotic drugs.

What impact will this research have?

We aim to find answers to fundamental biological problems that will enable the development of new diagnostics and treatments for patients with blood clots. Due to the high incidence of blood clots in the population, this will help an unquantifiable number of people.
