In silico study of near-wall platelet dynamics in diabetic blood flow with an adhered white blood cell (WBC), showing a platelet sliding over a WBC and undergoing a flipping motion. Such WBCs tend to reduce platelet margination while increasing the probability of platelet-WBC aggregation. See the article by Chang et al. in the October 2nd issue of Biophysical Journal.

How sickled red blood cells stick to blood vessels
Analysis of blood from patients with sickle-cell disease reveals how cell clumping begins.
Scientists have developed a new system to classify the shapes of red blood cells by using a computational approach known as deep learning. This unique approach can potentially help doctors treat their patients with sickle cell disease. The findings were published in PLOS Computational Biology. (Read more.) Visual Credit: Xu et al.
