Dr. Ware’s laboratory studies fundamental aspects of platelet biology to elucidate their role of in vascular disease. His interests in hematologic disorders began with a fellowship at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.  From there, he spent the next 17 years at The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, CA.  He joined UAMS in 2004 as a Professor in the Department of Physiology & Biophysics.  Dr. Ware has published over 150 articles and reviews on many aspects of vascular biology but primarily focusing on hemostasis and thrombosis.  He has served as a grant reviewer for the National Institutes of Health for more than 30 years and is Co-director of the Hematology-Oncology module for freshman medical students.  His current research efforts focus on the interplay of inflammation, thrombosis, and cancer.
