In Memory of Dr. Arthur Bode

Dr. Bode
The Board, Officers and colleagues at Cellphire, Inc., commemorate their colleague Dr. Arthur P. Bode (b. 1953, d. 2016). Eminent in the field of platelet research, and a joy with whom to work. A gentleman and a scholar, he will be sadly missed.

Dr. Arthur (Art) Bode had a background of scientific investigation in platelet function and transfusion for more than 25 years in the academic setting, retiring as full professor in Pathology from East Carolina University in 2009, and several years in a start-up company as Chief Science Officer for projects involving spray-dried plasma or lyophilized platelets joining to Cellphire in early 2014.  He authored six patents on stabilization of blood cells for long-term storage stemming from work funded primarily by the Department of Defense, and had numerous publications in scientific journals and textbooks.  While at ECU, Dr. Bode was the Scientific Director of the Clinical Coagulation Laboratory and Director of the Platelet Research Laboratory as well as Director of the Core Facility in Flow Cytometry and Confocal Microscopy, and was a fellow of the American Heart Association and the Society in Clinical and Applied Thrombosis/Hemostasis.
