Sickle Cell in Focus Conference 2017


After another successful event at the NIH/NHLBI, USA in June 2016, we are pleased to announce that Sickle Cell in Focus (SCiF) will be held for the first-time in Kingston, Jamaica on October 26-27, 2017. The 11th annual SCiF conference will be co-hosted by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute and The University of West Indies.

SCiF is a two-day, intensive, educational update on sickle cell disease. This year’s conference will focus on the latest clinical trials, the science and mechanisms for new therapeutic targets, and curative therapies. At the end of each day, there will also be two debates which will focus on topical issues for which there is no clear answer.

This two-day intensive educational conference is geared towards clinicians, academics, and other healthcare professionals involved in sickle cell disease around the world.
