SCIF 2021

The 14th Annual  Sickle Cell in Focus (SCiF) co-hosted by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute and the Caribbean Institute for Health Research, UWI will take place VIRTUALLY via Zoom September 30 & October 1, 2021. 

SCiF is a two-day, intensive, educational update on sickle cell disease. We aim to provide consultants, trainees, doctors, healthcare professionals, and academics interested in hemoglobin disorders with an opportunity for a comprehensive and global exploration of the current medical trends and research results in sickle cell disease. SCiF 2021 will highlight emerging clinical and management issues relating to sickle cell disease, emerging therapies and how we can use them in combination for effective treatment, and in light of the recent pandemic, we will also have a session on the impact of COVID-19 on patients with sickle cell disease. Each day will convene with a panel discussion; the first on FDA approved drugs and the second on the issue of gene therapy vs bone marrow transplant..
