Canadian Transfusion Trials Group receives $2.3M to support research network


The Canadian Transfusion Trials Group (CTTG) has received $2.3M from Canadian Blood Services to develop a transfusion medicine research community across Canada. CTTG is led by co-directors Jeannie Callum of Queen’s University and the University of Toronto and Donald Arnold of McMaster University. The funding will support the network’s efforts in protocol development and grant submissions, centralized data management and biostatistics, and mentorship for junior researchers. “This funding acknowledges the innovative nature of the trials group and its potential to inform best practice in transfusion medicine through a national network and multi-disciplinary partnerships,” said Arnold.
