Extensive Research Description

Dr. Levene’s project, Measurement of von Willebrand Factor Multimer Distributions, proposes the development of fluorescence fluctuation spectroscopy (FFS) for the evaluation of von Willebrand Factor (vWF) multimers as a more accurate and reproducible technique in von Willebrand Disease (vWD) diagnosis, classification, and monitoring, for elucidating specifics about the pathogenetic mechanism of thrombotic thrombocytopenia purpura (TTP), and as a new tool for assessment of coagulation or bleeding risk in a variety of common systemic conditions.
