This year the Preston lab was represented at the annual general meeting of the Haematology Association of Ireland in Cork by Sean McCluskey and Aisling Rehill. Both were selected for oral presentations and discussed their work on fibrinolysis and the role of inflammation in activated protein C signalling. A prize is given for the best oral presentation at the conference and this year it was won by Sean. Well done! We look forward to attending next year’s meeting in Galway.
