Laboratory for Clinical Biochemistry Research

Advancing Biomedical Science

The Laboratory for Clinical Biochemistry Research (LCBR) focuses on understanding risk factors for heart disease, stroke, venous thrombosis, obesity, diabetes, aging, and frailty using a wide variety of assays in population and family-based research settings, particularly in the areas of coagulation, fibrinolysis, thrombosis, inflammation, and immune system function. These results are linked to animal model studies, especially research in murine atherosclerosis

Study Data

Clinical Studies

The Laboratory research portfolio includes molecular and genetic epidemiology family-based genetic research, clinical trials and basic studies using murine models of disease.


Technical Information

The LCBR Faculty and staff has accumulated a vast amount and diverse range of experience working with and developing multitudes of clinical assays, including information regarding Luminex Validation, and Luminex Validation Data by Analyte.
