The National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF) is pleased to announce that this year’s Judith Graham Pool (JGP) Postdoctoral Research Fellowship recipient is Lacramioara Ivanciu, PhD, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). Ivanciu has been a post-doctoral fellow in the laboratory of Rodney Camire, PhD, principal investigator of CHOP’s Thrombosis and Hemostasis Division, since May 2008.
Ivanciu’s funded research project, “FXa Variants for the Treatment of Hemophilia VIII,” will seek to better understand FXa variants and provide new clues on how to improve the biological response to vascular injury in bleeding disorders patients.
NHF’s JGP postdoctoral research fellowships were established in 1972 to promote projects in clinical and basic science research on biochemical and genetic aspects of hemophilia. Since its inception, NHF has funded 72 scientists for one- or two-year studies, which have produced vital insights into hemophilia and other bleeding disorders. These JGP fellows have played an important role in the development of better concentrates, improved methods of carrier testing and more detailed understanding of the genetics of hemophilia.
