The area of current research interest involves collaboration with Dr. Steve Hinrichs and Peter Iwen in our department and Dr. Stefano Tarantolo in Internal Medicine in an attempt to identify a non-culturable microorganism which we suspect may have a role in post-transplant TTP. Our suspicions are based on morphological (transmission electron microscopy and light microscopy) grounds and beneficial responses in affected patients treated with empirical antimicrobial therapy.
