Seminar series: Platelets from 13-lined ground squirrels are resistant to cold storage lesions


Event details

Part of the CBR seminar series, this lecture will share research that is pioneering the use proteomic and metabolomic techniques to determine how ground squirrel platelets are resistant to cold storage lesions in platelets and could lead to medical advances to treat thrombocytopenia, store human platelets in the cold for transfusions, and regulate blood coagulation in cases of accidental or induced hypothermia.

Presented by

Dr. Scott Cooper
Professor of Biology, University of Wisconsin-La Crosse
