Fields of Interest:The liver synthesizes numerous coagulation factors, making altered hemostasis a significant concern in patients with end-stage liver disease. Our laboratory approaches this connection early in the pathogenesis of liver disease. The team’s long-term goal is to understand the mechanisms whereby the coagulation cascade contributes to the pathogenesis of liver disease. [excerpt, Luyendyk Laboratory site]
