Canadian Blood Services funds research into transfusion medicine

May 14, 2014

Alan Tinmouth and the University of Ottawa Centre for Transfusion Research (UOCTR) have been awarded $718,286 by Canadian Blood Services. Dr. Tinmouth heads up the centre, which is a multidisciplinary group of researchers in hematology, nephrology, surgery and intensive care who work together on common research topics such as transfusion, resuscitation and transplantation. The Canadian Blood Services award will help to support non-grant funded research and clinical research fellowships. Of particular interest, the new funding will enable UOCTR researchers to link with The Ottawa Hospital’s Data Warehouse.
