TAPAS Virtual Enterprise

Targeting Platelet Adhesion Receptors in Thrombosi(TAPAS) is a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN) European Joint Doctorate (EJD).

Our aim is to determine the molecular basis of platelet activation by key  platelet glycoprotein receptors in haemostasis, thrombosis and vascular integrity, and to establish new ways to regulate these processes to prevent thrombotic disease.

Our approach is to integrate knowledge from analytical complex ‘omics’, advanced microscopy, cell biology, microfluidics, in vivo models, contemporary systems biology and high throughput screens to identify new targets for therapeutic intervention and novel lead compounds or biologics.
