Dr. Konkle's Story

Dr. Barbara Konkle enjoys the intellectual challenge of solving patients’ problems by understanding their symptoms in the context of laboratory analysis. With her longstanding research and clinical interest in hemostasis (the stoppage of bleeding) and in thrombosis (excessive or inappropriate clotting), she aims to help people who have bleeding or clotting symptoms.
Dr. Konkle is especially interested in translational research—the bridge between scientific discovery and improved patient care.
A nationally and internationally recognized expert in laboratory evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of bleeding and clotting disorders, Dr. Konkle continues to pursue research on hemostasis clinical test development and the use of such testing to support innovative clinical research. Her ultimate goal is to help bring new therapies to patients.

 In addition to seeing patients at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance Hematology Clinic, Dr. Konkle is on staff at Bloodworks NW, where she sees patients with inherited bleeding disorders in the Washington Center for Bleeding Disorders at Bloodworks and supervises the hemostasis, platelet immunology and genomics reference laboratories.
