Paula James David Lillicrap Queen's Molecular Hemostasis Group

2010 July 27
At the recent World Federation of Hemophilia Congress in Buenos Aires (July 10-14th) the Queen's Molecular Hemostasis Group was very well represented.

Drs. James and Lillicrap presented and/or chaired five oral sessions involving the genetic analysis of inherited bleeding disorders, the use of animal models to evaluate clotting factor immunogenicity and the development of gene transfer strategies for hemophilia.

In addition, several posters from the group were also displayed at the meeting, and Amrit Kahlon, a Queen's hematology fellow, attended the meeting to present her results on peri-operative levels of factor VIII and VWF.
