John J. Moulds Laboratories
In 2004, LifeShare’s Board of Trustees adopted a resolution to name the laboratories for world-renowned serologist and immunohematologist John J. Moulds, MT(ASCP)SBB.
Mr. Moulds joined LifeShare in 2004, bringing with him the expertise and wisdom of a highly distinguished career in immunohematology. In addition to his expert contributions to the laboratory and the creation of the Scientific Support division, Mr. Moulds donated his extensive collection of rare reference cells to LifeShare.
With this contribution, LifeShare’s rare reference cell collection became one of the largest in the world.
The laboratories were formally dedicated on February 19, 2011, as the John J. Moulds Reference and Scientific Support Laboratories. Mr. Moulds passed away later that same year. We, at LifeShare Blood Centers, will never forget him and work to carry on his great legacy.
