  Fusogenic liposomes: the innovative delivery of compounds into human platelets to reduce animal use in platelet research
  Dr A Pollitt, Prof J M Gibbins
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Platelets are small cells in the blood which, when activated, play a critical role in the prevention of excessive bleeding at sites of injury.
  Platelet-cell interactions: Platelets beyond thrombosis and haemostasis
  Dr A Pollitt
Applications accepted all year round
"Platelets play a key role in the prevention of bleeding following blood vessel damage.
  Investigation of the critical roles of platelets at the interface between thrombosis and inflammation in order to develop improved therapeutic strategies for the treatment and/or prevention of cardiovascular diseases
  Dr S Vaiyapuri
Applications accepted all year round
Platelets (small circulating blood cells) are involved in blood clotting to prevent excessive bleeding, however, their inappropriate activation under pathological conditions leads to thrombosis resulting in major cardiovascular diseases such as heart attack and stroke.
  Mechanisms regulating cell shape and architecture in health and disease.
  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
  Dr J Welburn, Dr T Ly
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Much research on cell organization has been using tissue culture epithelial or fibroblast cells. However, many other types of cells have a unique cellular organization tailored to their function.
  Using light sheet microscopy to monitor uptake of proteins in platelets
  Prof S P Watson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Platelets play a critical role in prevention of excessive bleeding at sites of vessel damage. A critical step in the formation of the haemostatic plug is the release of fibrinogen from platelet α-granules and the subsequent formation of fibrin, which together support platelet clumping and strengthens the clot.
  Using CRISPR in iPS cells to modify platelet function
  Dr C.E. Hughes
Applications accepted all year round
"Platelets are the small cells in the blood whose job it is to prevent bleeding. Under normal conditions, when they encounter a damaged blood vessel they become activated and form a thrombus.
  Mechanisms and functional consequences of platelet-macrophage cross-talk
  Dr J Hewitson, Dr I Hitchcock
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Whilst platelets are well known for their role in blood clotting, more recent studies have revealed they are bona fide immune cells capable of modulating inflammation and immune cell function.
  Novel regulation of platelet-endothelial crosstalk in settings of vascular disease
  Dr N Pugh, Dr H Chichger
Applications accepted all year round
Research Group. Biomedical Research Group. https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-technology/research/our-research-institutes-and-groups/biomedical-research-group.
  Systems level analysis of platelet signalling
  Dr M J Fry, Prof J M Gibbins
Applications accepted all year round
We are interested in how intracellular signal transduction networks bring about complex biological behaviours in cells. We do this by combining computational biology with wet laboratory experimentation.
  The molecular mechanisms of thrombosis and haemostasis
  Dr C.E. Hughes
Applications accepted all year round
A healthy cardiovascular system relies on the cells lining the blood vessels (endothelial cells) and heart cells (cardiomyocytes) to function normally.
