research lab opens to better understand rare inherited anaemias

Noémi Roy’s research focuses on rare inherited anaemias, in particular looking for new genes not previously known to cause anaemia. By trying to understand these mutations, she is hoping to better unravel the normal processes by which red blood cells develop. Ultimately this could lead to new treatments for patients with both inherited or acquired anaemias, or help grow red blood cells in the lab to be used for transfusion, thus reducing dependence on blood donors.
