Marking World Thrombosis Day

13 October 2017

Anila Jahangiri, Sarah Hicks, Christine Lee and Sam Montague from The Gardiner Group -  Mechanisms of Thrombosis and Cancer at JCSMR have set up an information booth at The Canberra Hospital today to mark World Thrombosis Day.

WTD takes place every year on 13 October, the birthday of Rudolf Virchow who was a pioneer in the pathophysiology of thrombosis. A German physician, pathologist, biologist and anthropologist, Virchow developed the concept of "thrombosis" and advanced our understanding of this condition.
