Neil Morgan’s current research focuses on the molecular genetics of patients with platelet bleeding disorders and low platelet counts (thrombocytopaenia). The identification of novel gene defects would provide clues to genes and proteins involved in normal platelet physiology, and the ultimate aim is to extrapolate these findings to devising new treatments and treatment strategies to minimise risk of bleeding in selected cohorts of patients. Dr Morgan’s past research has primarily involved identification of novel genes for autosomal recessive inherited diseases and he has made many significant contributions in this field.
