SEMINAR: Research in Progress

1131 Bioinformatics 130 Mason Farm Road, Chapel Hill, NC

 Nidhi Gera, PhD Research Assistant Professor Parise Lab Exploiting platelet lipid metabolism to prevent thrombosis Human platelets are essential mediators of both hemostasis and thrombosis. A comprehensive knowledge of the platelet proteome is necessary for understanding thrombotic mechanisms and discovering new antiplatelet therapies. Using a chemoproteomics approach, we identified a novel lipid deacetylase in platelets, arylacetamidedeacetylase-like … Continued
