REDS-III International Sites

Underscoring the importance of global blood safety, the international portion of REDS-III involves collaboration between investigators in the U.S. and scientists at blood centers in Brazil, China, and South Africa.

  • The Blood Systems Research Institute in San Francisco is collaborating with the Fundação Faculdade de Medicina and Hospital das Clinicas of the Medical School of the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil, with the participation of four blood centers located in Belo Horizonte - Minas Gerais (Fundação Hemominas), Recife - Pernambuco (Fundação Hemope), São Paolo (Fundação Pró-Sangue), and Rio de Janeiro (Fundação Hemorio);

  • The Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore is collaborating with the Chinese Institute of Blood Transfusion, with participation of five blood centers located in Kunming, Urumqi, Luoyang, Chongqing, and Mianyang;

  • The University of California San Francisco is collaborating with the South African National Blood Service, which operates across all of South Africa except the Western Cape.

A major research focus of the international sites will be to identify effective ways to reduce the transmission of HIV/AIDS and other known and emerging infectious agents through transfusion.
