Research Interests

  • Dr. Rajasekhar's primary academic interests include diagnosis and treatment of benign hematologic conditions, particularly related to thrombosis and hemostasis. Her academic focus is on the prevention and treatment of venous thromboembolism. She provides consultation for patients on the inpatient services of Shands Hospital and maintains an active clinical and consultative hematology outpatient practice.
  • Dr. Rajasekhar is involved in benign hematology clinical research at the University of Florida. The primary focus of her research is in the prevention of venous thromboembolism. Dr. Rajasekhar has been active in the development of hospital-based guidelines for the improvement of venous thromboembolism prophylaxis. She is particularly involved in collaborative clinical research between the Division of Hematology/Oncology and the Division of Acute Care Surgery. Dr. Rajasekhar is the Principle Investigator for the University of Florida Filters in Trauma (FIT) Pilot Feasibility Study. She also co-authored an Evidence-based Mini Review in 2009 for the American Society of Hematology Annual meeting on the role of inferior vena cava filters in the bariatric surgery population. As faculty she will continue to participate in patient-oriented comparative effectiveness research.
