Transfusion Research Unit (TRU)
Our research focuses on blood transfusions in a range of clinical settings, especially in the treatment of major bleeding and rare blood conditions. We provide data that inform health care policy and practice, and contribute to high-quality patient care, improved clinical outcomes and better stewardship of precious resources. We also conduct research in a range of other blood diseases, such as blood cancers and bone marrow failure disorders.
We're part of the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine.
Our work helps the medical and wider community better understand and improve clinical practice and outcomes for transfusion and blood disorders.
Our national clinical quality registries and other projects collect information about conditions requiring major and/or complex transfusion support in order to improve outcomes for patients.
