Research interests

Dr. Leveque is a clinical pathologist with subspecialty certification in transfusion medicine. His current responsibilities include direction of the Houston Methodist donor center with fixed and mobile sites, an apheresis center, and a transfusion service that provides for active cardiovascular surgery, transplant, and oncology service lines. Dr. Leveque's research interests are focused on outcomes studies that assess strategies to reduce bleeding and initiate healing in injury and surgery, thereby reducing the demand for blood products. His current studies specifically evaluate the use of various drugs and growth factors including basic pancreatic trypsin inhibitors (BPTIs) and platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
