Kanthi Lab


The Kanthi laboratory studies the biology of venous diseases, including deep vein thrombosis (DVT), which occurs when patients develop potentially fatal blood clots in the deep veins of the legs and arms; and vascular bypass graft failure, which occurs when veins are used as bypass grafts to restore blood flow to tissue around arterial blockages.

Dr. Yogen Kanthi's lab is interested in the molecular mechanisms that lead to venous thrombosis and vein graft disease, and in developing novel therapies directed against these widely prevalent and morbid vascular diseases. Currently, our research is focused on endogenous, protective molecules at the intersection of inflammation and thrombosis, which can be harnessed to predict vascular disease and develop new therapeutics.

Dr. Kanthi is a board-certified in cardiovascular medicine. His clinical practice is focused on cardiology and vascular medicine.
