Transfusion Research Unit (TRU)
We conduct research that underpins policies and practices supporting high-quality patient care and outcomes for people living with a range of blood diseases, and those requiring blood transfusions, as well as better stewardship of precious blood product resources.
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.
Blood Synergy is a collaborative research program focused on addressing Australia’s national transfusion research priorities.
Our research outcomes are shared in the leading journals and conferences.
