Worth Lab Homepage

 Summer 2015

Our lab is interested in the inflammatory role of platelets and the interface between inflammation and thrombosis. We currently have projects directed at the role of platelets in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) which involves analyzing clinical specimens and performing functional platelet assays. Other projects in the lab involve understanding the interaction of platelets with pathogenic bacteria and viruses.

 Dr. Worth has trained graduate students (Ph.D., MS), medical students and post-doctoral fellows who have all gone on to excellent positions in their respective fields.
