Program Description: 

Through its educational arm, the ISTH Academy, the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) has begun hosting a series of webinars on practical thrombosis and haemostasis issues that scientists and physicians frequently confront. These webinars will allot time for participants to ask questions and will cover the latest information on relevant topics.

Electron microscopy (EM) has been at the forefront of the cell biology in general and is also an important tool in the platelet and MK research field.


Accreditation Statement

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of The Medical College of Wisconsin and International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis. The Medical College of Wisconsin is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
Designation of Credit Statement:
The Medical College of Wisconsin designates this live activity for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
More information and online registration:

Target audience: 
  • Cell Biologists
  • Hematologists
  • Students interested in the application of high-resolution EM techniques, cellular ultrastructure, and immuno gold localization methods related to MK development and platelet adhesive functioning
Learning objectives: 

At the conclusion of this activity, I will be able to:

  • Review current status of the different electron microscopy methods that are used in platelet and MK cell biology research
  • Compare the preparation techniques for conventional TEM and SEM, immuno-EM, whole mount TEM, and cryo-EM
  • Discuss recent developments in the application of (correlative) 3D EM
  • Illustrate several microscopy techniques (collectively known as super-resolution microscopy)
  • Describe how these modalities are beginning to allow researchers to study platelet biology
