Dr. John Tisdale - is a physician scientist who has spent his career working with Sickle Cell Disease.Focused on the impact of stem cell transplant on Sickle Cell Disease, Dr. Tisdale and his team work tirelessly. Their active clinical trials include working to make stem cell transplants less toxic, determining the effectiveness of whole and half matches for transplants, developing gene therapy protocols and specialized harvesting of bone marrow. The opportunity that NIH affords to do this work is not found elsewhere.
For patients, having a dedicated NIH branch for Sickle Cell Disease is a minor miracle. In very few places around the globe is Sickle Cell Disease given this kind of attention. At NIH, there is a waiting list for Dr. Tisdale’s clinical trials.We are honored to partner with Dr. Tisdale and the NHLBI medical team in support of patients receiving treatment and finding cures.
