Doctors and researchers at Cincinnati Children’s participate in numerous clinical and laboratory research projects designed to improve the lives of patients and find new therapies to treat bone marrow failure syndromes.
In our laboratories, we are working to:
- Investigate molecular, clinical and genetic mechanisms of bone marrow failure
- Find new biomarkers that predict prognosis
- Explore longitudinal changes in blood that predict bone marrow failure
- Explore novel therapeutics for certain bone marrow failure syndromes
Our doctors partner with other researchers throughout the world to further the understanding and treatment of these diseases. For instance, our team participates in the Severe Chronic Neutropenia (SCN) International Registry, which monitors the clinical course, treatment and outcomes of patients with SCN. We also participate in the Diamond Blackfan Anemia Registry, the Dyskeratosis Congenita Registry, and the Shwachman-Diamond Syndrome Registry, for which Kasiani Myers, MD, serves as the co-director.
