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.
The Camire Lab is interested in understanding the components of the blood coagulation system, how they interface with activated cells, and how disturbances in their function lead to bleeding and thrombosis.
