Letters of Support for Research Grants

Canadian Blood Services recognizes that it can provide unique opportunities to researchers interested in transfusion and transplantation science and will entertain requests for letters of support for research grant proposals. Canadian Blood Services may provide research teams with in-kind support, including access to unique research equipment and facilities; access to unique expertise; provision of unique research samples or data, as well as support to disseminate research findings. However, because each research project is unique, it is anticipated that Canadian Blood Services’ support to each project will also be unique. 

Canadian Blood Services will prioritize its support towards research projects that will add value to the operations of Canadian Blood Services or to the broader blood system in a cost-efficient way. For example, projects which are anticipated to impact collection of blood or blood components or blood products manufacturing processes are welcome.
