Our mission is to establish a new and innovative approach to the prevention and treatment of heart disease and stroke,

positioning Australia as a leader in the discovery and development of innovative therapies for the treatment of atherothrombotic diseases.

What impact will this research have?

Research undertaken in our laboratory is focused on determining the mechanisms underlying clot formation in healthy individuals; using this knowledge to better understand the mechanisms leading to platelet hyperactivity and pathological blood clot formation; and ultimately development of safer and more effective therapies to treat cardiovascular diseases including heart attack, stroke, diabetes and the metabolic syndrome.
