Our lab is interested in the hemostasis system, especially coagulation factor VIII and IX, which are deficient in the bleeding disorders hemophilia A and B. By studying these blood proteins, the lab team aims to improve therapies for children with these diseases including gene therapy.
Dr. George's clinical and research interests are in the development of novel therapeutics for hemophilia. The George Laboratory studies the molecular basis of coagulation with specific emphasis on the intrinsic tenase enzyme complex.
Combining our proven clinical expertise in hemophilia gene therapy and care of bleeding disorders with our research expertise to solidify Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia as the premier center for the therapeutic development and advanced clinical care of inherited bleeding disorders.
