Contributing to BloodCenter of Wisconsin’s life-saving work and advancing medical knowledge requires the discipline, dedication and expertise of our world-class research investigators. Through a multi-disciplinary approach to scientific inquiry, our investigators have made significant contributions to medical research. But more importantly, our research investigators have directly improved the lives of so many people through treatment, diagnosis and management of disease in these four key areas: Immunobiology, Transfusion Medicine, Thrombosis, Hemostasis and Vascular Biology, and Stem Cell Biology/Hematopoiesis.
Investigators in the Immunobiology Program focus on work in the following areas: B cells, T cells, NK cells, autoimmunity and immune system development.
In the area of Transfusion Medicine, our investigators study: platelet immunobiology, drug dependent antibodies and platelet dosing.
Investigators in the Thrombosis, Hemostasis and Vascular Biology program study: bleeding and clotting disorders, coagulation, sickle cell disease, vascular events (inflammation, platelet interactions, the integrity of the blood vessel wall, etc.)
Research in the Stem Cell Biology and Hematopoiesis Program encompasses signals and factors that regulate normal and disordered hematopoiesis.
