He is a leading expert in the care of children with sickle cell disease and directs the newly established Vanderbilt-Meharry Center for Excellence in Sickle Cell Disease. DeBaun’s research focuses on understanding cerebrovascular injury in children with sickle cell disease, and improving management of their care.
