Biography

Dr. Mona D. Shah’s current research interests include clinical and translational projects in hemostasis and thrombosis. She is currently the Principal and/or Co-Investigator of several clinical trials evaluating hemostatic/thrombotic therapeutic agents, including Factor XIII, dalteparin (Fragmin®), dabigatran (Pradaxa®), etc.

Her previous research has involved a number of basic science and translational research projects to evaluate the roles of tissue factor-bearing microparticles in the pathophysiology of various hematologic and oncologic disorders (e.g., idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, hemophilia, deep venous thrombosis. Her work involved optimizing methods of isolation, detection, and analysis of plasma microparticle levels and their associated procoagulant activity, as key mediators of hemostasis and thrombosis. In order to address parameters that significantly affect circulating microparticle measurements, Dr. Shah developed a novel assay, where microparticles are measured from whole blood with far less manipulation of the original sample.
