John Moulds Memorial Lecture
The John Moulds Memorial Lectureship was established in John’s memory in October of 2011 by John’s employer, LifeShare Blood Centers, in partnership with South Central Association of Blood Banks (SCABB) and Quotient Biodiagnostics. 

John’s career as an immunohematology reference lab specialist began with an interest in high and low incidence blood group antigens.  He also had a unique ability to recognize and adapt techniques for use by the serologist in investigation of simple and complex problems.  His leadership and participation in various organizations showed his willingness to share his knowledge.  Some of these included Invitational Conference of Investigative Immunohematologists (ICII), ASCP, AABB, ISBT, and SCABB.  He formed the Serum, Cell and Rare Fluid (SCARF) international exchange in 1972 and served as its director for almost 40 yrs.

John was a passionate Immunohematologist who was best known for establishing the international Serum, Cell and Rare Fluid Exchange (SCARF) in 1972 and serving as its director for almost 40 yrs.  He was the consummate teacher always willing to share his knowledge with anyone who asked.  John was the Director of the John J. Moulds Scientific Support Services at LifeShare Blood Centers when he lost his almost 3 year battle with pancreatic cancer.
