Pittsburgh to Coordinate $24M Multi-Center Study of Mysterious Trauma-Induced Hemorrhaging

Dr. Stephen Wisniewski, senior associate dean and co-director of the Epidemiology Data Center at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health will coordinate a new multi-center, multidisciplinary effort – supported by a five-year, $23.8 million National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant – to study a deadly bleeding syndrome called coagulopathy that occurs without warning in some trauma patients. Led by University of Vermont professor emeritus of biochemistry, Dr. Kenneth Mann, the Trans-Agency Consortium for Trauma-Induced Coagulopathy (TACTIC) study is a cooperative effort funded by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) that establishes a unique collaboration between the NIH and the Department of Defense (DoD).
