A close relationship between adipocytes and megakaryocytes: a link with obesity
September 24, 2020
Judith Cosemans holds a PhD degree (2009) in platelet biology, which focused on the dynamic regulation of thrombus stability. As a postdoc, she further developed flow chamber technology as a compatible alternative for experimental animal models of arterial thrombosis. As of April 2020, she leads the platelet research group in Maastricht, NL.
With her research team she aims to:
• provide novel mechanistic insight into the pathophysiology of thrombosis in the heart and in the brain;
• develop better diagnostic tools and novel druggable targets to prevent recurrent thrombotic events.
