We study the genetics of human blood clotting disorders (e.g. von Willebrand disease and protein C deficiency) using zebrafish and mouse models. We are developing large scale zebrafish mutagenesis screens to identify genetic and chemical modifiers of these disorders. This will be followed by investigation of these modifiers in mouse models and human populations. For more information, click on laboratory website link or go to
