Firstly I would like to thank my supervisors in the Molecular Diagnostics Centre at Manchester Royal Infirmary. Dr. Tony Cumming devised the project and provided me with guidance on the interpretation of the results. Dr. Steve Keeney advised on the laboratory work and results obtained. Thank you both for all the help with completing my thesis, and for all the track changes! I would also like to thank my supervisors at Manchester Metropolitan University. Firstly, Dr. Len Seal for all his help with my initial work and transfer report to PhD. Secondly, Professor Bill Gilmore for continuing my supervision when Len retired from the university. My thanks go to all of the staff in the Molecular Diagnostics Centre for their continued encouragement. I would particularly like to thank Pam Grundy for her help and advice during my laboratory work, and to Dörte Wren and Zoe Pickering for their friendship and laughter. I would like to acknowledge the clinicians Dr. Paula Bolton-Maggs, Dr. Charlie Hay, and Dr. Andrew Will, and the haemophilia nurses in the referring haemophilia centres for recruiting patients in to the study. Thanks must also go to the patients for their consent to participate in the study. I would like to thank my family for their support and encouragemente, specially during the writing-up period. I am very grateful for all the babysitting duties they have performed and countless Sunday lunches they have provided. My biggest thanks go to my husband Neil for everything he has done whilst I have been completing the PhD. He has been a constant support, shoulder to cry on, chef and motivator, without him I would never have completed the work. My final thanks go to my son Ewan, for not giving me too many sleepless nights in the fmal few months of my write-up. 111
