Congratulations to Abigail Ballard-Kordeliski (Bergmeier lab): paper published in the journal Blood

In this study, Bergmeier lab developed a 4D (3D over time) in vivo imaging model of mouse hemostatic plug formation. With this model, they demonstrated that the accumulation of fibrin, an essential component of hemostatic plug stability, is determined by a balance of fibrin formation and degradation. The lab also examined the contribution of procoagulant platelets to the accumulation of fibrin and demonstrated that platelets are the functionally dominant procoagulant surface for fibrin accumulation in hemostasis. Abigail Ballard-Kordeliski is the first author.
