The European Platelet Network (EUPLAN) aims to provide an international excellence platform for information exchange and promotion of basic and clinical research on blood platelets and megakaryocytes. The network therefore supports the organization of a biannual conference in Europe for basic scientists and clinicians working in the field of platelet and megakaryocyte research. The first edition of the conference in Maastricht (The Netherlands) was a great success with more than 200 participants.

We are happy to announce that the second EUPLAN Platelet Conference will be held at Le Bischenberg, (France), on September 25-26th, 2014. Scientific sessions are scheduled on both days from 9-18 hrs.
