Endothelial glycocalx is endovascular layer that covers all vascular surfaces and functions as local "fine tuning" mechanism. My currenct project aims to delineate how coagulation is regulated by glycocalyx structures in health and disease, in particular, in coagulopathy among patients with traumatic brain injury.
