Grant Recipient Uses Mobile Device Observation in Sickle Cell Pain Study
Technology takes center stage in a new epidemiologic study of acute vaso-occlusive pain associated with menstruation in women with sickle cell disease (SCD). Deva Sharma, MD – who completed her hematology-oncology fellowship at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine and is currently a transfusion medicine fellow at Vanderbilt University Medical Center – is spearheading an initiative to understand the biology behind the severe, debilitating pain experienced by women with sickle cell disease during menstruation.
