AABB’s National Blood Foundation (NBF), established in 1983, serves the fields of transfusion medicine and cellular therapies through grant making, educational offerings and industry leadership engagement and recognition.
NBF encourages innovation through our early-career scientific research grants program that supplements AABB’s mission to further develop transfusion medicine, cellular therapies and regenerative medicine science. For over thirty years our early-career grant program has funded more than 200 investigators – many are now subject matter experts and leaders in their fields.
NBF’s recognition programs acknowledge prior NBF grant recipients annually. Our Hall of Fame recognizes lifetime achievement leaders who contribute to the field and scientific investigators are acknowledged through the Scholar Program.
By convening clinical and research leaders along with industry executives, NBF supports critical conversations among industry manufacturers, providers, and patient advocates. These conversations can spark innovation, enhance the exchange of ideas and confirm priorities.
Your contribution to the NBF helps us advance transfusion medicine and cellular therapies by helping to support the future leaders of the field and by providing opportunities for education and knowledge transfer. All donations are tax deductible. 501(c)(3) tax ID #36-2384118.
