IMB Distinguished Seminar: "Roles of tissue factor in hemostasis, thrombosis, inflammation and immunity." by Nigel Mackman
We are happy to announce that the second IMB Distinguished Seminar will be given by leading expert on thrombosis, Prof. Nigel Mackman of the University of North Carolina.
The understanding of the mechanisms of thrombosis has undergone a revolution in the past decades and has led to the development of many therapeutic concepts that are already in, or on their way to, clinical use. Dr. Mackman has worked for 20 years at the The Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla, California, USA and has made seminal discoveries on the initiation of coagulation pathways through a transmembrane protein called tissue factor. He has spent the last 8 years at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA investigating the interactions between coagulation and inflammation. This recent work has led to significant contributions to other fields of research such as immunity, cancer and vascular biology. He has generated many strains of transgenic and knockout mice that are used worldwide for research related to thrombosis and haemostasis. He has won several awards of distinction from the American Heart Association (AHA) and the International Society of Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH).
