Our research group wants to improve the rate in which people with inherited bleeding disorders are diagnosed.  We would like to compare blood samples from individuals with inherited bleeding disorders and those from healthy individuals.  By studying these blood samples, we can look at the differences of DNA behaviour, in each group, and this may help us to better understand why some people inherit bleeding disorders and some don’t. Blood sample data has already been collected and is stored in a large repository.  We would like to examine and include this data in our research.
