Dr. Michelson is Professor of Pediatrics and Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A. He is also the Director of the Center for Platelet Research Studies ( and the Director of the Thrombosis and Anticoagulation Program at Dana-Farber/Boston Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders Center. After receiving his medical degree with honors from the University of Adelaide, Australia, Dr. Michelson continued his medical and research training on a Fulbright Scholarship at Boston Children's Hospital, Brigham and Women's Hospital, and Harvard Medical School. In 2019 he received the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) Esteemed Career Award. Dr. Michelson has been an invited participant in numerous National Institutes of Health working groups, international workshops and consensus conferences. He is the co-organizer and co-chair of the biennial International Platelets Symposium. Dr. Michelson is a past Chairman of the Platelet Physiology Scientific Subcommittee of the ISTH. He has published more than 450 original research articles, original research abstracts, and invited reviews - nearly all on the topic of platelets. Dr. Michelson has been the principal investigator on more than 100 research grants. He has been an invited speaker at over 200 major medical conferences worldwide. Dr. Michelson is an inventor on two awarded and three provisional U.S. patents.
Platelets - winner of a 2013 Highly Commended BMA Medical Book Award for Internal Medicine - is the definitive current source of state-of-the-art knowledge about platelets and covers the entire field of platelet biology, pathophysiology, and clinical medicine. Recently there has been a rapid expansion of knowledge in both basic biology and the clinical approach to platelet-related diseases including thrombosis and hemorrhage. Novel platelet function tests, drugs, blood bank storage methods, and gene therapies have been incorporated into patient care or are in development. This book draws all this information into a single, comprehensive and authoritative resource.
