Buchanan Award

AVV is the proud sponsor of the Buchanan Award.  The Donald Ian Buchanan Memorial Lecture is given by a laboratory technologist who is working in the field of transfusion medicine, at the CSTM annual conference.  Dr. Buchanan was a strong supporter of technologists and encouraged them to share their expertise at meetings and conferences.


The award recipient is determined by the CSTM.  For more information visit the CSTM website -
