Celebrating 29 Years of Awarding Grants, 1983-2012
The National Blood Foundation (NBF), established in 1983, has a history of supporting research and education that advances transfusion medicine and cellular therapies by funding scientific research that benefits patients and donors. Funds are raised annually from corporations, blood centers, foundations and individuals by the NBF for the National Blood Foundation Research and Education Trust Fund (NBFRET) and the NBF. The NBF and NBFRET, which are 501(c)(3) organizations, provide grants for scientific research in the field of transfusion medicine and cellular therapies and support educational initiatives that benefit this community. Since 1983, the NBF has distributed approximately $7.5 million to 177 early-career scientists.
