The Chair in Transfusion Medicine

The Association of Blood Donation Volunteers – Héma-Québec – Bayer Chair in transfusion medicine at the University of Montréal

This year, Bayer and the Foundation continued to fund the Association of Blood Donation Volunteers – Héma-Québec – Bayer Chair in Transfusion Medicine, directed by Dr. Jean-François Hardy.

Preparing the next generation and acquiring new knowledge on the medical and surgical use of blood products are the Chair’s priorities. Again this year, the Chair supported the training of young physicians by putting in place a research program axed on gaining a better understanding, of the modes of action of blood products, and consequently on finding better way to use them.

When its commitment ended in 2013, $900 000 had been invested in the Chair in Transfusion Medicine to benefit the population of Québec. Thank you!
