The coagulation system prevents the body from bleeding after injury, but what you might not know is this system continuously develops with age. This means children & adults have different risks of blood clotting + bleeding. This alters how they react to blood-thinning medications
“How can we protect our most vulnerable children?” This is the research aspiration that Chantal pursues in her daily life.

Blood clots are useful – they help us stop bleeding when we have an injury. However, the formation of blood clots within our blood stream (thrombosis) can have disastrous consequences – including death.
Children in hospital are much more likely to have thrombosis occur than healthy children. Childhood thrombosis has been described as the “new epidemic” in hospitals; venous thromboses in children = a 3% mortality rate, & survivors may experience long-term side effects.
