They are able to respond to a wide range of agonists and when activated at the site of blood vessel injury they rapidly aggregate to form a platelet haemostatic plug. Platelets are therefore of central importance in maintaining the physiological integrity of the vascular system and play a major role in the pathological development of thrombosis.

Our laboratory is interested in the cell biology of platelets, from the molecular through to the systems level. We are particularly interested in understanding how ...
