Málþing um rannsóknir á blóðflögum: Frá geymslu til nýsköpunar

Symposium on platelet research: From storage to innovation

  • 17.5.2019, 14:00 - 17:20

Málþingið verður haldið í Hringsal Landspítalans við Hringbraut föstudaginn 17. maí 2019 kl. 14 - 18.

Undanfarin ár hefur Blóðbankinn ásamt Háskólanum í Reykjavík og Háskóla Íslands lagt stund á rannsóknir á geymslu blóðflaga og hvernig nýta megi blóðflögur sem ekki eru notaðar í sjúklinga til að rækta frumur og í vefjaverkfræði.

Á þessu málþingi verða rannsóknir tengdar þessu kynntar auk þess sem að tveir erlendir gestafyrirlesarar kynna rannsóknir sínar á blóðflögum. Forvígismenn þessara rannsókna hafa verið Ólafur E. Sigurjónsson, prófessor við Háskólann í Reykjavík og í Blóðbankanum og Óttar Rolfsson, prófessor við Háskóla Íslands.
