Silvio Antoniak, PhD

Assistant Professor of Pathology

As a member of the UNC Blood Research Center, we are able to interact and collaborate with experts in blood coagulation and platelet biology. My lab is especially interested in investigating the contribution of the coagulation and platelets to anti-viral immune responses. Furthermore, in a collaborative effort with clinical experts of the UNC Blood Research Center, we are investigating potential pathways to improve cancer patients’ quality of life by reducing cardiotoxic side effects of highly efficient anti-cancer therapies.

Research Interests

Protease-activated receptors in cardiovascular diseases, myocarditis, and heart failure animal models
