Bender Lab

Megakaryocyte and platelet group

Our laboratory is funded by the Emmy Noether Program of the German Research Foundation (DFG) and we are located at the Department of Experimental Biomedicine, University Hospital, University Wuerzburg.

The main focus is on unraveling the mechanisms involved in functional platelet production from their precursor cells, the megakaryocytes, and the role of platelet proteins in normal hemostatic function (to seal a wound) as well as in pathological thrombus formation.
