Find out more about the research projects we are currently supporting.
We support clinical and non-clinical research in the areas of transfusion, pathology, organs and tissues, and cell, apheresis and gene therapies.
Growing red blood cells in the laboratory from both donated blood and from umbilical cord blood cells.
Non-invasive and more donor-friendly approaches could improve haemoglobin measurement for blood donors.
Linking health records to help understand whether whole blood and platelet donation has any long term effect on donor health.
Understanding if the interval between blood donations in England can be safely and acceptably decreased.
Understanding whether tranexamic acid will reduce bleeding in patients who have very low platelet counts due to their disease
Understanding the importance of amino acids for HIV infection and, more generally, their role in the immune system.
Analysing samples collected from consented organ donors and organs, to predict outcomes and allow for targeted interventions.
Assessing organ viability using advanced techniques and allowing organs to be conditioned and repaired.
How different types of nerves, blood vessels and stem cells control the growth and travel of blood stem cells.
Developing methods to make platelets in the lab from stem cells as an alternative to donated platelets.
Developing new ways to produce red blood cells, to reduce the need for conventional transfusion therapy.
