We are doctors looking after patients with blood disorders and scientists studying blood conditions in the lab. Our aim is to deliver the best expert and compassionate care for patients with blood diseases and patients who need blood cell transfusions. We want to reduce the burden of disease now and in the future, through our research, services, education, outreach and advocacy.
Our group includes international, scientific and clinical leaders. We draw on our combined expertise to carry out research and develop new services. Through our work we aim to:
- Improve the cost-effectiveness of cancer therapies and the outcomes of treatment – by developing new single cell approaches which tailor treatments to individuals. Find out more
- Improve the management of common and rare anaemias – by studying the role of iron and inflammation in anaemic patients, especially those who are elderly, and by developing a new national NHS service for patients with rare inherited red cell disorders. Find out more
- Improve the outcomes of blood cell and blood component transfusions – by using advanced e-tools and carrying out clinical trials to find out what approaches work best. Find out more
- Involve patients and carers in the key steps of our research projects. Find out more
