Brief description In this grant we will investigate how blood cells called platelets are produced in normal conditions and during disease. Platelets are blood cells that stop us from bleeding when we get a cut. When too many platelets accumulate, there is an increased risk of blood clots forming. This project grant will help us learn how platelet numbers swell in response to some blood and ovarian cancers, and the mechanisms that control cell death in platelets and the cells that produce them.
