Fibrinolysis and Wound Healing

Welcome to the Law Lab

Our research is focussed on the molecular interplay between the fibrinolytic system and tissue injuries as a result of infection or trauma.

We're part of the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, and a member of Cardiovascular Disease and
Infection & Immunity Program and the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

Our research

Our research focus is on characterising the mechanism of plasminogen activation/inhibition in infections (including Clostridium difficile infection and necrotising fasciitis), traumatic injuries, clotting disorders, ischemia and cancer metastasis. Using different approaches such as structural biology, cell biology, biochemistry and monoclonal antibodies, we seek to understanding the role of plasminogen in disease development and wound healing. Our works extend also to areas of therapeutic developments.

1. Understanding the how Streptococcus pyogenes hijacks plasminogen for tissue invasion.

2. Structural studies on plasminogen activators and inhibitors and their utility in diseases management.

3. Binding of plasminogen to cell surface receptors - structure, function and biological consequences.
