Research Interests

Dr. McLean’s primary research interest is in coagulation parameters in pregnancy, with particular emphasis on thrombotic risk.  She is currently involved in collaborative studies to better understand thrombotic risk in specific subsets of pregnant women (obese women, smokers, etc.).  She hopes to expand her research to include studies of the fibrinolytic pathway, as well as more detailed biochemical studies of coagulation pathways, to better understand pregnancy and postpartum-related hematologic changes.
