In some cases, donor blood cannot be administered to patients in need of a blood transfusion. Structures known as blood group antigens are located on the surface of red blood cells. If a blood transfusion recipient has antibodies to a blood group antigen occurring in the donor blood, the consequences can be fatal. Lonneke Wigman studies the genetic background of rare blood group variations and the characterisation of their effects on antigen expression.
