James P. Luyendyk, Ph.D.
Associate Professor, Insititute for Integrative Toxicology / Pharmacology & Toxicology                                                                                                                                  
Location: Food Safety, Rm 253
Phone: 517-884-2057

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]
