Up Close and Personal With Platelets – Professor Nicholas Pugh

Video   Jan 28, 2021


This week at Teach Me in 10, we're joined by Professor Nicholas Pugh from Anglia Ruskin University. His research investigates the signalling mechanisms that are used by platelets during pathophysiological thrombus formation, and he's particularly interested in the role of zinc as extracellular and intracellular signaling molecules.

In this video, Professor Pugh brings us up close and personal with platelets. What are they? What are they essential for in human physiology? Why is it important that we study them? Watch this Teach Me in 10 to find out more. For further reading, Professor Pugh suggests you check out the following publications:

Making of Neoma MC-ICP-MS


For scientists whose research requires high-precision isotope ratio data in fields of cosmo- and geochemistry, geochronology and biology, nuclear safeguards, forensics, metalomics, and provenance studies, we have created a new multicollector ICP-MS. Designed and developed in Bremen, building on the strengths of our multi-collector platform with field-proven technologies such as RPQ, 10^13 ohm Amplifier Technology and Jet Interface.


What Is Neuroplasticity? With Dr Michael Merzenich


Throughout your lifetime, your brain continuously revises its own wiring. This ability of the brain to change and adapt is referred to as neuroplasticity (neuro = neuron, plasticity = the malleability of the brain). Here to explain precisely what neuroplasticity is, how it happens and how we can harness it, is one of the world's leading minds in this area – Dr Michael Merzenich.
