Hemostatic Nanoparticles to Control Postpartum Hemorrhaging

  • Project Lead(s): Christian Kastrup

    Preventing postpartum blood loss is a principle challenge to reducing maternal death in resource-scarce regions. Dr. Christian Kastrup’s team at the University of British Columbia is developing an easy-to-use, low-cost technology toward this challenge. The technology uses self-propelling particles that rapidly travel through blood to clot blood and stop bleeding.
