I am an Elderly Care Registrar and Stroke Clinical Research Fellow at Cambridge University Hospital. My research interests lie in atrial fibrillation, as well as the role platelets play in thrombus formation in such conditions. My research is funded by the British Heart Foundation and is supervised by Dr Elizabeth Warburton.
The GRAFITE (Glycoprotein six Receptor in Atrial Fibrillation and ThromboEmbolism) study will investigate the involvement of platelets in blood clot formation. The research will be carried out on blood samples of individuals admitted to Cambridge University Hospitals with either atrial fibrillation or venous thromboembolism, in conjunction with the haematology department and department of biochemistry at the University of Cambridge.
We will specifically look at any and whether its inhibition could lead to arresting the platelet cascade at an earlier stage in the clot forming process.
