Junior group 'Clinical Platelet Epidemiology'

Marina Panova-Noeva, MD, MSc, PhD

Group leader

The “Clinical Platelet Epidemiology”, a junior group in the department of Clinical Epidemiology at CTH, aims to introduce and establish epidemiological methodology on standardization of data and biomaterial assessment, and expertise in biostatistics integrating large-scale data sets with various data levels, to platelet research. The working program of the junior group focuses on the investigation of functional characteristics of platelets in patients with acute venous thromboembolism (VTE) and its interrelation with cancer as well as in survivors of both childhood and adult cancer. Generated new data will add evidence on the role of platelets in the pathogenesis of VTE and cancer and the potential application of platelet function tests to the ongoing search for the optimized models to predict vascular risk.

Research interest

  • Platelet phenotype in acute VTE
  • Platelet phenotype in cancer survivors at risk for cardiovascular diseases
  • Application of epidemiological methodology and standardization integrating large-scale data sets to platelet research
