Research Overview

Dr. Nathan no longer operates a research laboratory. Most of his academic effort is devoted to teaching students, house staff and fellows, mentoring young faculty members, and writing text book chapters, books and short articles. He continues his interest in the congenital and acquired bone marrow failure syndromes and the hemoglobinopathies. He has recently received three program project grants of which he is the PI devoted to an entirely new treatment of sickle cell crisis based on interference with iNKT cell function. He remains involved in policies concerning clinical research.

RELATED RESEARCH CENTER

Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders Center

Dana-Farber/Boston Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders Center is one of the top research centers in the world for pediatric cancers and blood diseases. It brings together laboratory scientists and clinical researchers from Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Boston Children’s Hospital in a single program. We investigate pediatric cancers and non-malignant blood disorders from every angle—from examining cells under the microscope to tracking the effectiveness of current drug regimens using the most advanced molecular methods—so that we can create better treatments for children seen here and around the world.
