Research | Overview
Physicians and scientists in our program conduct clinical and laboratory research to increase knowledge of anemia and red blood cell disorders and their treatment. Our clinical research program offers unique access to clinical trials in which children can receive the latest treatments. A major focus of our research program is the rapid translation of scientific discoveries to the bedside to benefit patients.
Our physician/scientists discovered a gene for a rare form of inherited iron deficiency that may provide clues to iron deficiency in the general population, particularly iron deficiency that doesn’t respond to iron supplements. Through this and other research, our physicians work to improve therapeutic approaches and outcomes for all forms of clotting disorders.
