Denese’s work improves blood component quality and safety for the whole journey of blood, from collection through to processing, storage and transfusion. Part of this work involves developing novel blood products (like platelet lysate and frozen blood components).

Denese has published over 65 peer reviewed papers during her time at Lifeblood, and she enjoys making an active contribution to the blood research sector in Australia and overseas.
