Prof. James Morrissey,
Urbana, United States of America University of Illinois
James H. Morrissey received his Ph.D. degree in biology in 1980 from the University of California, San Diego, and did postdoctoral research at the University of Oxford in the UK and The Scripps Research Foundation in La Jolla, California. He was a member of the faculty of The Scripps Research Foundation and the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation before taking a position in the fall of 2000 as professor in the Biochemistry Department and the College of Medicine at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Since 1985, Dr. Morrissey’s research has been the regulation of the blood clotting system in both normal hemostasis and thrombotic diseases. These studies have focused on the basic biochemical mechanisms by which the blood clotting system is triggered on cell surfaces with a particular emphasis on protein-membrane interactions in clotting. His laboratory has also discovered that polyphosphate of the type secreted from activated platelets is a potent modulator of the blood clotting system. The work from his lab has led to a number of spin-offs with potential clinical applications, including novel clinical assays for markers of thrombotic risk and possibly the development of novel hemostatic agents for treating bleeding.
