Why we need your help

Platelet society Logo

The Platelet Society is a charity supporting the Research and Education of Platelet Releated Diseases.

Blood platelets play a key role in the process of blood clotting and maintaining the health of our blood vessels. However, these small cells have also been implicated in a range of different diseases and disorders including excessive bleeding, thrombosis, cancer and autoimmune diseases.

The Platelet Society works to support researchers working on platelets and platelet disorders, as well as working to improve education on platelets for the public and patient groups.

We are delighted that Giordano Pula is running the London Marathon in 2021 to raise funds to support the work of the charity. Giordano is a platelet scientist and keen runner and is really excited about getting the opportunity to run the London for a cause close to his heart.

Giordano has been providing updates on his training which can be seen on our website - click here to read the latest news.

The money raised from this campaign will be used to help us support and develop training opportunities for platelet scientists, especially our early career researchers, as they begin their careers, and to develop our education resources to help inform the public about platelets and cardiovascualr health.

We thank you for supporting our work.
