John-Paul is working on better understanding the effects and possible negative outcomes associated with transfusion, especially of stored blood products.

A particular focus is on transfusion-related acute lung injury (TRALI) with his doctoral thesis, from the University of Queensland in 2012 describing the development of the first large animal model TRALI. John-Paul uses a range of animal and laboratory models for his research.
