Hazel Forde – The Anthony Nolan Trust: Histocompatability Laboratory Manager

As the Research Laboratory Manager at The Anthony Nolan Histocompatability Laboratories attached to the Royal Free Hospital Hazel’s work covers two areas 1) Immunotherapy using Cord Blood Stem Cells: looking at complications that can occur post-transplant, e.g. infections. For a patient with an already weak immune system, these can sometimes be fatal. Main problems being post-transplant viral infections and Graft versus Host Disease (GvHD), where the donor’s immune cells attack the patient’s organs. The projects look at ways to reduce the chances of this happening. 2) Immunogenetics: This helps decisions to be made on how to find the best donor for a patient. Studies look at the relationship between the genetics of our immune system and clinical effects. Her other job title is: Anthony Nolan Health & Safety Manager (Grad IOSH) – With over 200 staff at Anthony Nolan made up of office staff, scientists, students in both admin & science, volunteers, home based staff & a regional office in Scotland, Hazel finds this role a diverse and challenging post.
