Wolfgang Bergmeier, Ph.D.Congratulations to Wolfgang Bergmeier, Ph.D., Professor, Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, in collaboration with a multi-institutional team, for publishing article in the journal Science Advances.

 

Science AdvancesTheir research, titled “Platelets Trigger Perivascular Mast Cell Degranulation To Cause Inflammatory Responses and Tissue Injury”, was published in the March 18, 2020 edition of Science Advances and can be read online now.

 

Science AdvancesDr. Bergmeier and the team explain why platelet responses are associated with organ injury and mortality after cardiac surgeries and how platelets cause local and systemic inflammation via mast cell activation.
