Blood Research Systems Institute (BSRI) has an outstanding record over the past 20 years of successfully conducting laboratory research projects for NIH and CDC-funded multi-center programs related to transfusion safety and infectious diseases. BSRI/BSL has played a key role in many of the major blood safety research programs from the early 1980s to the present. These multicenter studies have resulted in over 150 publications. These manuscripts clearly document the breadth and depth of BSRI's laboratory capacity, including the ability to develop and apply innovative specimen processing and analytical methods that addressed critical questions posed by investigators in these programs.
