Congratulations to CSANZ member Dr Sonali Gnanenthiran who has just been awarded the Thrombosis and Haemostasis Society of Australia and New Zealand (THANZ) Medal, believed to be the first Cardiologist to win this award.  

This is the highest honour from THANZ coming from her PhD work, with the paper entitled: Identification of a distinct platelet phenotype in the elderly. ADP hypersenstivity co-exists with platelet protease-activated-receptor (PAR)-1 and PAR-4 mediated thrombin resistance.  

Supervised by Prof Len Kritharides and Dr Vivien Chen at the ANZAC Research Institute.
