As we expand our clinical research activities, more and more of our focus will include efforts that are from members of our program who have nurtured their own research interests and are nearing the initial stage of adapting their findings for the direct benefit of patients.
Our physician scientists have pioneered the diagnosis and treatment of pulmonary complications of sickle cell disease and have begun the first national clinical trial for therapy. Another example of our Yale generated-trials includes our work on childhood cancer survivorship and neurocognitive outcomes after therapy. Our new neurocognitive testing program not only provides a needed service to our patients but also collects data on our patients in order to more fully understand the long term effects of what we do in order to cure our patients.
