HTRS Member SpotlightDr. Evi Stavrou, Oscar D. Ratnoff Professor of Medicine & Hematology, Case Western Reserve University

Dr. Evi X. Stavrou, Director of Anticoagulation Clinic at the Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center, received her MD degree summa cum laude from Semmelweis University in Budapest, Hungary. On completion of her medical school training, Dr. Stavrou completed her Internal Medicine residency at Johns Hopkins University-Sinai program and Hematology-Oncology fellowship at University Hospitals Case Medical Center. Presently, Dr. Stavrou’s work is focused on the Factor XII – uPAR interactome and neutrophil cell biology in health and disease. Her work has been published in premier journals including Blood, the Journal of Thrombosis and Haemostasis, Nature Communications and the Journal of Clinical Investigation. Dr. Stavrou’s work was funded initially through an HTRS Mentored Research Award supported with a grant from Baxter Healthcare Corporation (now Takeda) and subsequently from the American Heart Association. Presently, Dr. Stavrou is funded by the National Institutes of Health, VA Research & Education Foundation, and VA Advanced Platform Technology Center. Her clinical duties are focused solely on patients with hemostatic and thrombotic disorders.


Q: Outside of medicine, what other interests do you pursue?

A: I am a classically trained violinist so I like to keep up, perhaps not as much as I’d hope. I also like to keep my orchids alive.

Q: If you could bring one book and movie to a desert island...

A: For a book, I would choose “The Undoing Project” by Michael Lewis because it illustrates how opposite geniuses attract and is a fantastic example of complementary collaboration among individuals. Amos and Danny completed each other scientifically to introduce the concept that psychology can be applied to Economics and human decision-making. They are a prime example that collaboration can lead to innovative thinking and a new field of science. It is also a wonderful testament to ever-lasting friendship and a sad story, as Amos passed away before receiving the Nobel Prize that he so much deserved.

For a movie on a desert island, I would pick “The Sound of Music.”  I grew up watching it and I would need the happiness and music to remind me there are things to live for.
