Sickle cell disease research has increased over the years, and this research has allowed physicians to effectively treat patients with new treatments. Research has opened the doors to many options for people with sickle cell disease to help them live healthier, happier, lives.

We participate in various interventional and observational clinical trials, in order to better improve outcomes, and treatments for patients with sickle cell. If you want more information about sickle cell research, please contact Melody S. Benton, mbenton@tulane.edu, or 504-988-3596.
