Cardiovascular Medicine

Current research is focused on the roles of adenosine diphosphate and prostaglandin E2 in platelet function, the involvement of P2Y receptors and EP receptors in mediating the effects of these agents, and on approaches to modifying their effects using selective receptor blockade; there is a major emphasis on identifying simple methods that can be used to measure platelet function in patients with cardiovascular disease and to monitor the effectiveness of treatment; this research has culminated in the setting of a spin-out company called Platelet Solutions.
