Professor of Medicine

Dr. Moll is a clinician, clinical researcher, and educator, with a particular focus on thrombosis and anticoagulation. His research interests include clinical trials on venous thromboembolism and better use of anticoagulants, antiphospholipid antibody syndrome, and postthrombotic syndrome.

A major interest of Dr. Moll is the clinical-medical education of patients, health care professionals, the media, and the general public on venous thromboembolism and anticoagulation. He is a co-founder and the medical director of the UNC Blood Clot Information Program Clot Connect.

His clinical interest and expertise include unusual thromboses (e.g. cerebral and sinus vein thrombosis, retinal vessel thrombosis, splanchnic vein thrombosis, unexplained arterial thrombosis in the young), unusual thrombophilias (e.g. antiphospholipid antibodies; rare and compound thrombophilias), and unusual patient populations (e.g. high-level athletes).

Dr. Moll started the UNC “Athletes and Blood Clots Program” with the following aims: (1) to provide state-of-the-art comprehensive clinical care to high-level athletes, together with colleagues from UNC Sports Medicine, (2) to create and make available information/education for athletes and their families, physicians, trainers and coaches, the media and the general public; (3) to engage in and support clinical and basic research on high-level athletes.

Finally, Dr. Moll takes a special interest in supporting trainees in hematology and related fields in their career development involving the coagulation-hematologic topic.
