The Sickle Cell Disease Association of America (SCDAA) Medical and Research Advisory Committee (MARAC) believes that progress in sickle cell disease (SCD) is tied to clinical trials and comprehensive care. For this reason, we encourage individuals with SCD to consider participating in research. It’s because thousands of courageous children and adults with sickle cell disease signed up for research that we have improved survival, developed new medicines and found possible cures.
