This group has been working in three different fronts that overlap to some extent. Hemostasis is a common denominator of two of the labs, the Comparative Platelet Investigation Laboratory focus in a better understanding of many aspects of platelet function testing in health and disease, and under treatment with anti-platelet drugs such as aspirin and dantrolene; the Comparative Angiogenesis Laboratory has its efforts pointed towards understanding how angiogenesis in cancer and healing can be manipulated, with emphasis on platelet related mechanisms. The third, the Molecular Diagnosis Investigational Laboratory attention is on new molecular diagnostic techniques development, and the diagnosis of several condition including infectious and genetic, cancer diagnosis and prognosis, and therapeutic follow-up.
