Myung Park, M.D. (CTSA ’16), received an NIH R01 Award

Myung Park, M.D. (CTSA ’16), Division of Trauma, Critical Care and General Surgery at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, received an NIH R01 Award (Venous Thrombosis After Traumatic Injury – R01HL162729-A1) to study the
role of neutrophil extracellular traps and von Willebrand factor in inducing venous thrombosis after injury. The long-term goal in Dr. Park’s laboratory is to develop novel predictive, diagnostic and treatment strategies that identify “at-risk” individuals for venous thromboembolism or bleeding soon after trauma. The central hypothesis is that clinically significant thrombosis requires the integrated dysregulation of NETosis, thrombin generation, endothelial injury and von Willebrand factor platelet dysfunction. Dr. Park is an associate professor of surgery in the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine and Science.
