The 2019 NHLBI Annual Sickle Cell Disease Research Meeting is a 3-day meeting that provides a yearly forum for investigators, practitioners, and interested health care providers to discuss the process of ongoing clinical trials, hear presentations about new developments in scientific and clinical aspects of sickle cell disease, and interact with other investigators and NHLBI program staff in an informal setting. This year’s program includes six symposia that cover a broad range of topics (see Agenda).

NIH program staff will make presentations on the progress of two major initiatives: The NHLBI Sickle Cell Disease Implementation Consortium and the Cure Sickle Cell Disease Initiative.
