Maastricht visits USC

On the first week of September Prof. Johan Heemskerk and the TAPAS student Delia Fernández, from Maastricht University, visited Prof. Ángel García’s lab at CIMUS, Santiago de Compostela, to set up the fluorescence microscopy-based platelet flow-adhesion assay using the Maastricht microfluidics chamber. The technology was set up successfully thanks to the team effort and hard work carried out during two intense days by Johan, Delia and the platelet team at Santiago. This new technology will benefit all TAPAS students coming to CIMUS and will strengthen the collaboration between Johan and Ángel’s groups. At the same time both Johan and Delia had the opportunity to get to know CIMUS and enjoy some time in Santiago de Compostela.
