About the Author
Dr. Ángel García is currently a Ramón y Cajal Research Fellow at the Pharmacology Department, Universidade de Santiago de Compostela, Spain His main research is the area of platelet proteomics, with special emphasis in cardiovascular research and platelet signaling studies. He has written over twenty publications in peer-reviewed journals and has been an invited lecturer at the Platelets 2010 International Symposium (Jerusalem, Israel), and the XXII Congress of the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis, held in Boston, United States, in 2009, where he chaired a session on novel approaches to understanding platelet biology. Sr. Garcia was a postdoctoral research associate of the Proteomics Group at the Oxford Glycobiology Institute, University of Oxford ((UK), from 2001 to 2005.
Dr. Yotis Senis is currently a British Heart Foundation Research Fellow at the University of Birmingham, United Kingdom. He is a senior member of the Birmingham Platelet Group. Dr. Senis' research interests include the identification of novel platelet surface glycoproteins and determining their biological and molecular functions. He is also interested in the functional roles of protein tyrosine phosphatases in platelets and thrombosis. Dr. Senis has been an invited lecturer at the 2010 International Symposium (Jerusalem, Israel) and the Gordon Research Conference on the Cell Biology of Megakaryocytes and Platelets (Galveston, Texas). He has written over twenty publications on platelet signaling and thrombosis.
