Our Mission

The Boston University Thrombotic Microangiopathy Collaborative (BU-TMAC) provides a multidisciplinary approach to the care of patients with TMA. The multidisciplinary team is very unique in its structure and function, involving physicians from different subspecialties with great interest and expertise in managing patients with TMA.

The Collaborative combines basic and clinical research to advance the understanding of the TMA syndromes. We are an integral part of the Affinity Research Collaborative (ARC) on Thrombosis and Homeostasis that consists of investigators from several academic departments with a common goal to investigate thrombosis in humans.

  • Evaluation, management, and treatment of patients with TMA.
