    This Review provides an update of the latest developments in our understanding of platelet functions and populations in normal physiology and in haemorrhagic, thrombotic, and inflammatory conditions. These advancements can aid in tailoring new strategies to target platelets in disease states while avoiding the increased risk of bleeding associated with current antiplatelet therapies.
