Chris Kendrick

Senior Lecturer

School of Health Sciences

My career in science commenced as a Laboratory Technician in the dairy industry but after a year at this job I commenced training to become a Medical Laboratory Technologist in the Lab at Wanganui Hospital.  I specialised in Haematology/Immunohaematology and Microbiology with much of my professional career spent in the area of Blood Transfusion.  I moved from the of the Blood Bank at Wanganui Hospital to the Manawatu Regional Blood Service and in 1985.  In 1993 I took up a position as lecturer at Massey University to teach Haematology and Transfusion Science in the Bachelor of Medical Laboratory Science degree.  I have an ongoing interest in the professional affairs of Medical Laboratory Scientists and have served on the Council of the New Zealand Institute of Medical Laboratory Science retiring from the Presidency of this organisation after 16 years.  I have recently been awarded Life Membership of the NZIMLS.  I have been appointed to the Board of the Medical Sciences Council of NZ.  Since commencing at Massey I have completed a GradDipSci (Microbiology/Immunology) and an MSc for my thesis on “Transfusion related endotoxaemia caused by Yersinia enterocolitica in New Zealand”.  I am principal supervisor for student MSc projects that span my research interests in the subject areas of Haematology & Transfusion Science. 

Commencing my career as a Laboratory Technician in the dairy industry I commenced training as a Medical Laboratory Technologist to Wanganui Hospital.  In 1993 I joined the staff at Massey to teach Haematology and Transfusion Science in the newly established Bachelor of Medical Laboratory Science degree.  My research interests are in the areas of diagnostic pathology, haematology, blood grouping and transfusion transmitted infections.
