Biorheology

 

This Subcommittee is focused on all blood flow related issues in thrombosis and haemostasis: from clinical blood flow assays of haemostasis to basic research models. We recognize the importance of shear stresses on hematopoietic cell and endothelial function and transport phenomena in coagulation, anticoagulation and fibrinolysis and how these phenomena combine with biochemical mechanisms in nonlinear and complex ways to control clotting, platelet activation, and vascular biology. The expertise of hematologists, biomedical researchers, physical scientists and engineers is utilized.

Mandate

  • To review the state-of-the-art in flow-related issues for clinical and research practitioners.
  • To evaluate existing blood flow assays and make recommendations for improvement.
  • To establish standardized research protocols and clinical flow-based assays of haemostasis.
  • To identify and foster emerging areas of research related to biorheology.
  • To communicate the findings of the subcommittee in a clear and timely manner through journal publications and conference presentations.
