Richard E. Harris, MD Director, Bone Marrow Failure Clinic, Bone Marrow Transplantation & Immune Deficiency
Director, Bone Marrow Failure Clinic, Bone Marrow Transplantation & Immune Deficiency
Bone marrow failure syndromes such as Fanconi anemia; Shwachman-Diamond syndrome; dyskeratosis congenita; congenital amegakaryocytic thrombocytopenia; Diamond-Blackfan anemia; severe aplastic anemia
Transplantation for children with bone marrow failure syndromes (Fanconi anemia, Shwachman-Diamond syndrome, dyskeratosis congenita, amegakaryocytic thrombocytopenia, Diamond-Blackfan anemia) and aplastic anemia. Cytogenetic abnormalities in Fanconi anemia.
Dr. Harris's primary interest is in aplastic anemia and the various forms of hereditary bone marrow failure syndromes. He is active with the Fanconi Anemia Research Fund presenting at both the annual family meeting and the annual scientific meeting. Likewise he is active in the field of Shwachman-Diamond syndrome and is developing a US / Canadian SDS Registry. He also is participating in the development of the International SDS Registry. He is director of the Bone Marrow Failure Clinic at Cincinnati Children's Hospital where several hundred children are followed with these disorders. He is active in developing safe approaches to bone marrow transplantation for children with these disorders. His interest in these areas were recognized by the presentation to him of the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Fanconi Anemia Research Fund in 2005.
Outside of his medical interests, he is a scoutmaster of a very active and large Boy Scout Troop in Cincinnati and has been presented the Silver Beaver Award for his scouting activities, the highest award a volunteer scouter can receive.

Robert E. Wood, PhD, MD Director, Pulmonary Bronchoscopy Department
Director, Pulmonary Bronchoscopy Department
Dr. Robert Wood, PhD, MD, is a pediatric pulmonary specialist, with particular interest in bronchoscopy. He has played a major role in the development of instrumentation and techniques for flexible bronchoscopy in pediatric patients. He is recognized as a teacher of endoscopic techniques, and has published many papers and book chapters on the subject. Additionally, he has extensive experience with clinical problems in pediatric pulmonary medicine, especially children with complex airway problems and cystic fibrosis.
Before coming to Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Dr. Wood was on the faculty of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio (1976 to 1983), and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (1983 to 1999).
