NYBC is calling on the community to make appointments to visit donor centers as COVID-19 has fundamentally changed the process of donating blood.
NYBC is now increasing the nation’s supply of convalescent plasma by collecting donations from those who have recovered from COVID-19. NYBC will collect, process the plasma for infusion, and maintain a bank for hospitals to treat patients with serious or immediately life-threatening COVID-19 infections. We are asking all eligible donors to come forward so we can treat as many patients as possible.
The grant will fund research into the impact of transfusions in patients with sickle cell disease and how to improve transfusion management for those with the disorder.
AABB 2020 is going virtual this year, but New York Blood Center Enterprises is still offering plenty of ways to engage with our subject matter experts from now until the conference on October 3-5.
