As part of the Jobst Vascular Research Laboratory, the Eliason team brings problems and questions observed in our clinical work with patients with vascular trauma to the lab bench. Our colleagues, experts in large animal model research and molecular techniques, help shape our investigations. The collaborative spirit and synergies inherent in the Jobst Lab and across the University of Michigan Medical School are critical to moving the field forward.
Motivating our scientific investigations is the need for a greater understanding of the pathways and mechanisms involved in hemorrhagic shock. Also driving our work is the need to balance the need for hemorrhage control with the ischemic complications that arise when a device is used to halt bleeding.
