Mortimer Poncz, MD
Mortimer Poncz
Chief, Division of Hematology

Dr. Poncz investigates the megakaryocyte-platelet-thrombus axis. The process by which hematopoietic stem cells differentiate into megakaryocytes are the central foci of his laboratory work. Many of his studies focus on the biology and pathobiology of the platelet-specific proteins, chemokines Platelet Factor 4 (PF4)/Platelet Basic Protein (PBP) and the integrin alphaIIb/beta3 receptor.
