We are a research group from the Faculty of Health Sciences, Universidad de Talca, which for many years have been investigating issues related to platelets. In recent years we have found an important role of platelets in various biological phenomena: hemostasis, thrombosis, immunology, aging, neuroscience and vascular tone, All of these in varying degrees that have been adressed by our group.

In recent years important part of our research have tried in search of antiplatelet drugs, especially from natural products. In this context we have methodologies to study both in vitro (activation, secretion, adhesion and aggregation) and in vivo (thrombosis model) platelet function.
