The platelet–collagen interaction, and subsequent platelet activation and thrombus formation, can lead to devastating neurological damage via ischemic stroke. There is a growing body of evidence pointing towards the importance of platelet glycoprotein receptors in stroke due to their requisite role in initiating downstream signaling mechanisms leading to platelet activation and pathological thrombus generation.

Dr Isuru Induruwa, clinicial research fellow in the Stroke Research Group will give an overview of glycoprotein VI in atrial fibrillation and thrombus formation.
