Scientific Steering Committee

Paul Kim, PhD
Co-Lead, Translational/basic science platform

Dr. Kim is an Associate Professor of Medicine at McMaster University. He is the Executive Director of the International Society for Fibrinolysis and Proteolysis (ISFP), as well as the current Chairman of the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) Scientific and Standardization Committee (SSC) on Fibrinolysis. His research interests include characterizing the mechanisms and pathways that regulate fibrinolysis and coagulation at the protein and cellular levels, and further extending his findings in animal models. Through these channels, Dr. Kim hopes to bridge basic bench research and clinical relevance closer. Dr. Kim’s research is supported by CIHR, NSERC, ISTH, CanVECTOR ERLI award, and McMaster University Department of Medicine Early Career Award. Dr. Kim also leads COVID-BEACONS, a CIHR Rapid Response funding initiative that hopes to identify biomarkers that predict clinical course and outcome in COVID-19 patients. He is also a partner of the CanCOV platform as the expert in coagulation.
