Microfluidic Platelet Profiling: Linking Platelet Reactivity With Molecular Signatures For Thrombosis Risk Prediction

Research interests

  • Platelet Diversity The lab has a keen interest in understanding the nature and consequences of platelet functional diversity. Using a droplet microfluidics strategy we can measure intrinsic platelet behaviour. Broad-continuum sensitivity was identified, with hypersensitive platelets able to drive heterotypic system polarisation. Current research aims at characterising platelet dynamics and transcriptome remodelling in response to stimulation to pin-point sub-populations governing thrombosis.
