The Board of Trustees
The Platelet Society is privileged to have four trustees – each with very different professional backgrounds – able to share their experience and knowledge for the benefit of the charity and those suffering from Platelet related diseases.
Chair: Dr Sarah Jones
Dr Sarah Jones completed her PhD with Professor Jon Gibbins at the University of Reading, investigating novel signalling pathways in platelets, before spending time as a postdoctoral research associate at Imperial College London, the University of Leicester and the University of Manchester.
In 2013, Sarah joined Manchester Metropolitan University as a Senior lecturer in Biomedical Science, where her research primarily focuses on understanding the pathways, which lead to increased risk of thrombosis in diseases associated with altered platelet and endothelial cell function e.g. Diabetes. Sarah is a reviewer for a number of publications, including: Hypertension, The Journal of Thrombosis and Haemostasis, Platelets and PLOSOne and has published nearly 30 research articles.
