Munday Laboratory

The Munday laboratory studies the physiology, biochemistry and genetics of platelet function in health and disease.

Current projects in the laboratory focus on the initial adhesion of platelets to areas of blood vessel injury (blood clots), and how genetic and environmental differences affect both blood clotting and bleeding.

Areas of Study

  • Platelet function in health and disease
  • Regulation of platelet adhesion by plasma membrane locales called lipid rafts.
  • Dietary intake of fatty acids, in particular fish oil, and platelet function.
  • Protein kinases (enzymes that add phosphate to the amino acids serine and threonine) and platelet function
  • Variability of platelet function
