HaemSTAR logo

Join this special HaemSTAR webinar in collaboration with the limbic on Wednesday 24th April, 08:30 – 09:15.

This month we welcome Prof. Bernhard Lämmle who, in 1996, led the team that discovered ADAMTS13 as the vWF cleaving enzyme that is deficient in TTP.

So, nearly 30 years on, who better to discuss current treatments and future challenges. The webinar will be hosted by HaemSTAR Chair Richard Buka and the talk will be followed by a lively Q&A session.

Sign up (for free) to the Limbic in order to access the recording.

Probably platelets podcast

Probably platelets is a podcast, organised through the platelet society, where we have a chat with platelet researchers to get to know them, find out more about their career journey and laugh about some of their mistakes, and you never know we’ll probably talk about platelets. Probably platelets is hosted by Beth Webb and Alexandre Slater, post-doctoral researchers at the Universities of Leeds and Birmingham. The aim of this podcast is to humanise and debunk myths about scientists, as well as build trust with the general public. Let’s not forget that scientists are people too and there’s much more to us than the work we do! We hope you enjoy!
