Research Summary

The Hendrickson laboratory studies complications of transfusion therapy, including RBC alloimmunization. Factors influencing RBC alloimmunization, including those on the donor and recipient sides of the equation, are studied primarily using reductionist murine models with expression of authentic human blood group antigens. Environmental and genetic factors impact the intersections of innate and adaptive immunity, resulting in RBC antibodies that lead to hemolytic transfusion reactions or hemolytic disease of the fetus and newborn. In addition to developing strategies to prevent RBC alloimmunization in a transfusion setting, the Hendrickson laboratory also studies strategies to prevent alloimmunization or to mitigate the dangers of existing maternal RBC alloantibodies in a pregnancy setting.
