Dr Paul Vulliamy

I joined C4TS in October 2015 as a clinical research fellow and PhD student, taking time out of my training in general surgery. My role within the group includes recruitment of patients into our observational and interventional studies, supervision of visiting medical students, and my own experimental work. I have also acted as lead research fellow for the EFIT trial, and currently for the iTACTIC trial.

My PhD was focused on trauma-induced platelet dysfunction. Platelets are uniquely positioned at the interface between coagulation and the wider immune response, but platelet function after injury is poorly understood. My continuing research investigates the mechanisms leading to platelet dysfunction, how platelets influence coagulopathy and organ dysfunction after injury, and the impact of platelet transfusions during haemorrhage.
