Tender Loving Research helping people requiring blood transfusions

March 25, 2015

The latest edition of our Tender Loving Research video blog features Dr. Dean Fergusson explaining the motivation behind his research on blood transfusions. More than a million blood units are transfused in Canada every year, saving countless lives, but there have been far fewer rigorous clinical trials on blood products than on traditional drugs. Dr. Fergusson’s research has answered many important questions and changed practices for blood transfusions around the world. The Ottawa Hospital Foundation’s Tender Loving Research Campaign aims to raise $50M for research at The Ottawa Hospital over the next three years.
