The Würzburg Platelet Group
We are dedicated to basic, translational and clinical research in the field of platelet and megakaryocyte biology in health and disease. We adopt a highly interdisciplinary approach relying on the combination of mouse genetics, disease models, advanced imaging techniques, systems biology, and clinical research expertise. Our mission is a comprehensive understanding of the platelet-megakaryocyte system in thrombotic, thrombo-inflammatory and malignant disease states with the aim to ultimately develop novel treatment concepts for these disorders.
We are engaged in local, national, and international collaborations and our group coordinates the DFG-funded Collaborative Research Centre / TR 240, a multidisciplinary consortium addressing major questions in this emerging research area.
