About Us

We are fighting a battle for people living with Sickle Cell Disease (SCD). The Foundation for Sickle Cell Disease Research (FSCDR) is the United States' first outpatient center exclusively dedicated to the treatment of and innovative research for SCD. Florida has the highest population of individuals living with SCD in the U.S. In 2014, we opened the center in Hollywood, FL, offering focused care and collecting data through clinical trials. We utilize a human-centric, community-based, rigorously scientific approach to caring for our patients and finding better solutions to treat them.


For the past seven years, we have grown strong roots in the South Florida community and have taken great strides toward our mission of resetting the narrative around SCD through specialized care and innovative research.


Our next challenge is building a state-of-the-art facility that provides ground-breaking treatment to more people living with SCD-offering more support to our patients, their families, and the broader sickle cell trait and advocate communities, while creating a center for collaborative research that encourages scientists, medical professionals, and physicians researching and treating SCD to work toward new, life-improving solutions.
