Canadian Blood Services Cord Blood for Research Program Overview
The Cord Blood for Research Program mission is to facilitate research that promotes advances in the fields of transfusion, cellular therapies and transplantation medicine in Canada. To achieve this, Canadian Blood Services’ Cord Blood for Research Program distributes to approved research projects, and with the mother’s consent, cord blood products collected at the Ottawa Hospital that do not meet the criteria for storage in Canadian Blood Services’ National Public Cord Blood Bank.
