Our Research Activities

Canadian Blood Services, through its Innovation and Portfolio Management, conducts and supports research projects in key priority areas that span the translational continuum from “bench to bed side.” The focus is on transfusion science and medicine but also related fields such as cellular therapies (in particular hematopoietic stem cell transplantations) and organ and tissue transplantation. Our research findings are published in peer-reviewed journals or directly shared with stakeholders.

Instrumental to our research efforts are discovery and applied research laboratories led by university-affiliated Canadian Blood Services staff scientists, as well as our medical experts and adjunct scientists. Complementing these core research teams, the Centre for Innovation facilitates a national and international research network of blood system experts through competitive research funding opportunities, collaborations and contract research.
