This lecture showcases the research activities of three early-career transfusion medicine and cellular therapies investigators who are utilizing or have utilized NBF grant funding to develop their investigations into highly productive transfusion medicine, cellular therapies or patient blood management research programs. The NBF Award for Innovative Research will be awarded at this luncheon to a previous NBF grant recipient who has developed his/her studies into high-profile innovative research with substantial impact that may ultimately lead to improving patient outcomes. Enjoy a delicious lunch while the scientists discuss their latest research with a focus on the role their findings will play in driving the future of transfusion medicine, cellular therapies and patient blood management. Time for questions and informal discussion will be provided.
This session is supported by an unrestricted educational grant from TerumoBCT
