Thalassemia Research at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland

UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland has a renowned thalassemia research program. Our research allows us to offer patients and families the most up-to-date and innovative therapies. Research done at Children’s has led to many advances in thalassemia treatment. As part of each thalassemia patient’s care, we consult with your family about studies your child may be qualified to participate in. Patients are never obligated to join any study; if a family chooses not to participate in a study, their child will still receive high quality healthcare. Our research and clinical teams work together to provide the highest quality, integrated healthcare possible. We look forward to talking to you and your family about research studies available for patients.
