REDS-III Domestic Sites

REDS-III provides support for four research sites within the United States which are referred to as Domestic Hubs. Each Hub has a blood center and transfusion services that serve specialty care and community hospitals.

Hubs participate in three general areas of research related to blood banking and transfusion medicine:

  • Studies addressing blood donors, including evaluating donors’ health to learn their iron status, assessing the prevalence of infectious agents in blood donors, and improving donor screening techniques;

  • Studies to optimize blood banking practices, including refinements to existing approaches and developing strategies to enhance blood collection, laboratory screening, and processing;

  • Studies addressing transfusion practices, including evaluation of blood product use in various clinical settings; non-infectious and infectious complications of transfusion; and clinical outcomes in patient populations that receive specific blood products.
