My role at HYMS is to help the university consolidate its research strength and to develop an independent research career in the area of cardiovascular and metabolic disease. My vision is to broaden the context of my research to investigate the complex role of platelets in inflammation and cancer.
My research specifically deals with signalling events that modulate platelet function. The models that I use vary from the established platelet aggregation to in vivo thrombus models and adoptive transfer protocols. Major research streams include: Uremic toxins and platelet function, cyclic nucleotide signalling pathways and the role of SNARE proteins in platelet secretion.
