The dynamics of thrombosis depend on prevailing hemodynamics in conjunction with biochemical determinants at the injury site (i.e. tissue factor, vWF, and collagen) along with prevailing biological attributes of the flowing blood. Fluid flow affects: platelet fluxes to the wall, the time available to form bonds, force loading of bonds, cellular deformation, endothelial metabolism, and removal of reactive species created during thrombotic events. We have deployed a variety of techniques in microfluidics and combinatorial high throughput phenotyping of platelet and coagulation function to drive hierarchical Systems Biology models of platelet metabolism and thrombus buildup under flow.
