Dr. Tormey has several diverse research interests within the field of Transfusion Medicine ranging from large clinical studies to translational research projects. Areas of current investigation include blood bank-based immunohematology where the properties of red blood cell alloantibodies in veteran populations are examined, particularly those factors influencing the duration of humoral response following alloimmunization. In addition, Dr. Tormey is interested in studying the biochemical and immunologic effects of storage on platelet, red blood cell, and plasma components in the blood bank.
