What the researchers say
Professor Stan Heptinstall MBE, Founder and Editor-in-Chief (1990 – 2015) of the journal Platelets says
It is so important that those of us engaged in platelet research do all we can to identify and treat conditions that are the result of abnormalities in platelet function. It is so good that the Platelet Charity is able to provide funds that promote research that, in the end, will make life better for people with such conditions.
Professor Jeremy Pearson, FMedSci, Deputy Medical Director, British Heart Foundation and Chair of the Grant Panel says:
Disorders in platelet function leading to bleeding problems are often under-recognised and poorly understood. By providing funds to explore new research leads, the Platelet Charity can help to make a real difference.
