Scientific, technological, and strategic lookout

Scientific Lookout
In addition to the advancement of its own research projects, the R&D team has to keep abreast of any scientific development that may impact the areas of blood and transfusion medicine. In this context, a science and technology watch service has been established. The mandate of this service is to ensure that R&D and managing personnel at Héma-Québec are aware of the most recent discoveries reported in influential biomedical research publications.

To fulfill this mandate, the quarterly information newsletter HÉMA-VIGIE, which summarizes recent developments in blood and transfusion, is produced and distributed internally. An abridged version of this newsletter is available to the general public.
