Gael Morrow

PhD Student

I am a 3rd Year PhD Student at the University of Aberdeen in Dr Nicola Mutch’s Lab.

My PhD project has focused on determining the role of platelets in fibrinolysis (the process of breaking down a blood clot). Our laboratory has found that proteins important in fibrinolysis and coagulation are retained on the surface of activated platelets in a protruding "cap".
