Hemostasis (GRS)
Gordon-Kenan Research Seminar


July 24-25, 2010


Waterville Valley
Waterville Valley, NH


Randal J. Westrick & Zachary Fulkerson

Meeting Description

The Gordon-Kenan Research Seminar on Hemostasis is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.

The Hemostasis GKRS will focus on blood coagulation, platelet biology, and anticoagulant pathways and related topics. This forum will lead to the exchange of ideas and the development of collaborations and within the research community, thus facilitating the development of careful, thoughtful, creative scientists interested in Hemostasis research.
