The Flaumenhaft laboratory studies fundamental problems in platelet biology that are of clinical relevance.
We use emerging technologies to evaluate poorly understood aspects of platelet function and employ novel imaging strategies to elucidate the interaction of platelets with thrombi in vivo.
An important goal of the laboratory is to create a training environment that is at once scientifically rigorous, intellectually intense, and enjoyable. The scientific maturation of each laboratory member is a priority of the Principle Investigator.
Academic development of lab members is accomplished in part by didactics. It is also achieved by fostering the productivity of each lab member, since productivity in biological sciences is an essential component of successful development.
