Through the Zimmerman Program for the Molecular and Clinical Biology of VWD she has worked on assays of VWF function and the genetics of VWF. She also has a grant from the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute to look at VWF interactions with type IV collagen and the impact of these interactions on hemostasis.
