Manufacture and Clinical Assessment of Cultured Red Cells



The key aim of this The Blood and Transplant Research Unit (BTRU) is to establish whether novel approaches to growing red blood cells from adult stem cells could help people who require regular blood transfusion by reducing the frequency of transfusion, reducing the treatment burden for patients and the unwanted side effects of frequent transfusions. This will involve a clinical trial in healthy volunteers in the first instance.
