Assistant ProfessorDepartment of Emergency Medicine Sites of Practice: Harborview Medical CenterFaculty Information Biography Dr. St. John is a clinician-scientist in Emergency Medicine. He cares for patients in the Emergency Department at Harborview Medical Center, and he performs mechanistic and translational research in the UW Emergency Medicine Research Laboratory and at Bloodworks Research Institute. He strives to use his clinical work and research to inform and advance each other to ultimately improve the outcomes of patients. Dr. St. John’s research is focused on understanding the causes of trauma-induced coagulopathy and finding new hemorrhage-control therapies to improve resuscitation outcomes of trauma patients. He has a particular focus on platelet dysfunction after trauma, and he hopes that by developing a deeper understanding of what causes it, he can develop new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to this problem. He receives funding from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute and the United States Department of Defense.
