Toronto Platelet Immunobiology Group (TPIG)
Hi there. Please excuse us while we update the site.
The Toronto Platelet Immunobiology Group (TPIG) is a close network of scientists and
physcians which are committed to meshing basic science research with clinical problems
related to transfusion immunology. It's current members are
Drs John Freedman (Co-director), Victor Blanchette (Co-director), John Semple,
Alan Lazarus, Valery Leytin and Margaret Rand.
The group is also active in disseminating information about immune blood cell disorders.
Because of some recent exciting event's,
