"Research in the Atherothrombosis & Vascular Biology laboratory at the Baker Heart and Diabetes Insitute spans from basic research in vascular biology to clinical trials in cardiology.

"This includes studies on the cellular mechanisms of thrombosis, coronary artery disease and heart attack, encompassing the role of platelets, coagulation and inflammation. Prof Peter is developing imaging tools to detect thrombosis and dangerous coronary artery plaques and is also developing drugs that aim to prevent and treat thrombosis and myocardial infarction without causing side effects. He has also developed novel therapeutics to prevent inflammatory reactions."
