Academic Honors

Removing “Sick” from Sickle Cell Disease—The Doris Duke Charitable Foundation granted Eric Bouhassira, Ph.D., the 2017 Sickle Cell Disease/Advancing Cures Award, which funds clinical research that demonstrates potential to improve the quality of life of those suffering from sickle cell disease. More than 90,000 Americans are afflicted with sickle cell disease; dysfunctional red blood cells cause these individuals lifelong pain and organ damage, and shorten their life expectancy. Rather than treat symptoms, Dr. Bouhassira’s research targets the core of the disease. His approach involves removing blood-forming cells from patients, correcting the defective hemoglobin genes using DNA editing technology, and returning these cells to the patients. The method has been shown to restore red blood cell function. Dr. Bouhassira is a professor of cell biology and of medicine and is the Ingeborg and Ira Leon Rennert Professor of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine.
