The Division of Hematology
will have a new Director beginning July 1.
Russell Ware, MD, PhD, will
assume that post, as well as that of Executive Co-Director of the Cancer and Blood Diseases Institute. He will also serve as Associate Director of the
Center for Child Global Health.
Ware’s research interests
focus on sickle cell disease, especially the use of hydroxyurea to ameliorate
symptoms of the condition, including the prevention of stroke and managing iron
overload, while improving quality of life. His efforts extend to treating
sickle cell disease in Africa, leading to his focus in global child health. He
is well funded by the NIH and several foundations for this work.
Ware received his medical degree from Duke University
and completed his pediatric residency at Baylor College of Medicine and Texas
Children’s Hospital. He completed a fellowship in pediatric hematology and
oncology, and a PhD in Immunology, at Duke University. Russell began his academic
career at Duke before moving to St. Jude Children’s Hospital, then Baylor,
where he served as chief of hematology.
