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
