Poster 39: Emma Page Patterson – Transient Platelet Dynamics on µ-Contact Printed Immobilized Protein Agonists

Faculty mentor: Vladimir Hlady

This research was conducted to understand thrombus formation in response to the differences in the behavior of platelets to varying agonists, with hopes to provide insight into the trajectory pathways of platelets in correlation to those varying agonists. Proteins were micro-contact printed onto Nexterion slides, immobilizing the peptides in specified priming, rolling and capture regions. Biomimetic microfluidic flow channels were assembled and perfused with whole blood, imaged, and analyzed.
