Research Interests:

My research focuses on understanding the response of cells and tissues to ex vivo storage and the development of methods for their preservation and use as therapeutic products. My laboratory has responsibility for developing scientific and technical evidence to support innovative changes in blood product manufacturing, storage and utilization at Canadian Blood Services, including the preparation and use of hematopoietic stem cell products. Through the newly formed Canadian Blood Services Product and Process Development group, I lead Canadian Blood Services’ efforts to assess new technology, products and processes that can improve the efficiency, quality and safety of blood and stem cell product manufacturing.
