Krikun wins support for her endometriosis research
Graciela Krikun, research scientist in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, was awarded the 2008 Coagulation Research Grant from the Aniara Corporation. Aniara provides screening tools as well as diagnostic and research agents.
Krikun will study a cohort of women with and without endometriosis to establish if this disease can be detectable without the need for surgery. Endometriosis, a major women’s health problem, is characterized by the presence of endometrial tissue outside the uterine cavity which causes pelvic adhesions, focal bleeding, infertility and pain.
