Summary Sentence: "Mass Transfer Regulation of Blood Clot Growth and Stability" - Keith Neeves, PhD - Colorado School of Mines & University of Colorado, Denver

Full Summary: The Bioengineering Seminar Series is a joint seminar series between the Petit Institute and the Biomedical Engineering department. Seminars are held on Tuesdays or Thursdays between 11am-12pm in Petit Institute, room 1128, unless otherwise indicated.

"Mass Transfer Regulation of Blood Clot Growth and Stability"

Keith Neeves, PhD

Associate Professor
Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering
Colorado School of Mines
Department of Pediatrics, University of Colorado, Denver

The formation of a clot is an exquisitely regulated biological process in which a complex
fluid, blood, undergoes a rapid transformation into a densely packed porous medium at
the site of a vascular injury. In this talk Keith Neeves will review the biophysical mechanisms that regulate the formation of a blood clot, with a focus on mass transfer limitations of platelet
agonists and inhibitors, coagulation and fibrin formation. Measurements made in
microfluidic models of vascular injury reveal that these mass transfer limitation have
important implications in the pathophysiology of bleeding and thrombotic disorders.
