The way to unravel the mechanism of cancer associated thrombocytes dysfunctions

Dr. Bahram Alamdary Badlou from the University of Utrecht, Netherlands, delivered his lecture on “the role of Platelets on health and disease”, at NIGEB Shahid Chamran hall on 18 December 2018.

The platelets are still an undiscovered area in the scientific world and they are constantly being studied, as it is an interesting field to the medical universities, hospitals and blood transfusions centers, he said. Dr. Badlou then briefly described the history behind the discovery of platelets, when they were discovered by Osler for the first time on 1873, and then 7 years later Bizzozero studied them more precisely and found that they play an important role in Thrombocytes and Hemostasis.

He declared that he and his colleagues are working to find a way to unravel the mechanism of cancer associated thrombocytes dysfunctions, and he invites the researchers from all over the world, including Iran, who are interested in this subject, to collaborate with him in this project.
