Blood Diseases Research
At Cincinnati Children’s, our researchers in the lab collaborate with our doctors at the bedside to improve the treatment our patients with blood diseases receive. The primary objective of the Division of Hematology is to provide state-of-the-art treatment for children and young adults with blood disorders and, ultimately, to develop cures. This mission is achieved by offering compassionate, comprehensive clinical care to patients and their families; advancing our understanding of these diseases through basic and translational research; and educating future healthcare providers and leaders in the field.
We are intent on bringing findings from the lab to patients to improve the outcome for current and future patients. Our faculty members participate in clinical care and / or research along with psychologists. Nurse practitioners, care managers, social workers, school intervention coordinators, child life specialists, data managers, administrative assistants and laboratory associates support the program.
The Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center, the Hemophilia and Bleeding Disorders Program and the Thrombosis Program deliver comprehensive services in collaboration with other Cincinnati Children’s specialists. A variety of clinical research activities are led by hematology faculty, supported by our Clinical Management and Research Support Core.
