Tell us a little bit about yourself!

I’m Dr. Sean Quinn; I became a JGP fellow back in 2021. Currently, I’m a postdoctoral research fellow at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. I heard about the JGP Fellowship from my faculty mentor and other researchers at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia who applied for the fellowship.

What does your research focus on?

My research examines antibody-mediated FV/FVa resistance as a therapeutic approach for hemophilia.

How has the JGP Fellowship supported your research?

The JGP Fellowship has helped me advance my research on the development of a monoclonal antibody that has been shown to potentially have a therapeutic benefit in the context of hemophilia. In addition, the support by the JGP fellowship has allowed me to present this research at major conferences such as the International Society on Thrombosis and Hemostasis and American Society of Hematology meetings. It has allowed me to network with scientists in the field of Hemostasis and Thrombosis which will certainly be beneficial for my future career endeavors.

How has your relationship with NHF evolved since your fellowship?

I have gained a greater appreciation of the work that NHF does to promote the awareness and advances in Hemophilia. Moreover, I plan to attend the upcoming bleeding disorders conference virtually, and I hope to present much of my research next year in person at this conference. 

The Judith Graham Pool Postdoctoral Research Fellowship has been supporting basic science and pre-clinical research to expand our understanding of bleeding disorders since 1972. Learn more here.
