with the Donor Research Network 

We form key partnerships with industry and academic leaders in donor research. We are delighted to collaborate with the following leaders:

Australian Red Cross Lifeblood

Lifeblood provides life-giving blood, plasma, transplantation and biological products for world-leading health outcomes, through the power of humanity. It’s been one of the most trusted not-for-profit health service providers in Australia for over 90 years — for good reason.


Did you know over 1.5 million individual biological donations were made in Australia in the past year? Blood donations are truly life-saving, but there’s more to Lifeblood than blood. Lifeblood also manages breast milk donations to help premature babies in need; helps DonateLife match organs to patients; facilitates bone marrow donation; and has recently launched a pilot program to provide life-changing faecal microbiota transplants.


Lifeblood is changing more lives in more ways than ever before.
