Our Clinical Research Programs include highly experienced multidisciplinary teams that evaluate a wide range of diseases in a variety of fields and are involved in leading national clinical trials.
Investigators are mainly focused in infectious disease epidemiology, laboratory, and clinical research in HIV/AIDS, and laboratory research in viral myocarditis.
The Division of Blood and Marrow Transplantation focuses on clinical research in a variety of areas in the fields of leukemia, sickle cell disease, and graft-versus-host disease (GVHD).
The Division of Rheumatology is a member of the Pediatric Rheumatology Collaborative Study Group (PRCSG) and the Childhood Arthritis and Rheumatism Research Alliance (CARRA), which are the premier research organizations in pediatric rheumatology. Through these groups, the division is actively involved in National Institutes of Health and industry sponsored clinical studies of juvenile arthritis, lupus, dermatomyositis, and vasculitis.
Investigators are involved in many aspects of hematology research, including optimization of the treatment of patients with clotting disorders, developing new therapies for sickle cell disease, and improving our understanding of immune perturbations associated with blood transfusions.
