Welcome to the Brigham and Women’s Platelet Group
At the Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) Platelet Group we research how megakaryocytes make blood platelets, and the role(s) that these platelets play in different disease states. The group was founded by our three principal investigators, Elisabeth Battinelli, Joseph Italiano Jr., and Kellie Machlus.
The BWH platelet group consists of approximately 15 scientists. Our lab manager and research assistants are the backbone behind all we do and support projects designed by our post-doctoral fellows and our three principal investigators, Elisabeth Battinelli, Joseph Italiano Jr., and Kellie Machlus.
Our research is primarily shared with the wider world through academic publications in peer-reviewed journals.
