HRI was strongly represented at the recent International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) Congress.

Held in Melbourne over July 6 – 10, the ISTH 2019 Congress brought together leading experts on thrombosis, haemostasis and vascular biology from all over the world to present the most recent advances, exchange the latest science and discuss the newest clinical applications designed to improve patient care.

Professor Shaun Jackson, Director of Cardiovascular Research at HRI, was a keynote speaker at the Platelet and Thrombosis Symposium, organised by the committee for the Chinese Symposium for Thrombosis and Haemostasis.

  • Dr Angelina Lay – Platelet Deficiency of ERp5 is Compensated for by Increased Levels of ERp57 and PDI
  • Ms Jessica Maclean – Investigation of Recanalization and Cerebral Perfusion with Adjunctive Thrombolytic Therapies in the iCAT Mouse Model of Ischemic Stroke
