Although thalassemia and sickle cell are among the most common monogenic hemoglobin disorders in the world, disease awareness is still far from acceptable.

Dr. Michael Angastiniotis, the Medical Advisor of the Thalassaemia International Federation, will cover global strategies to control these severe hemoglobin disorders and to improve awareness and education through carrier screening. Dr. Daniel E. Bauer, a renowned Harvard physician-scientist, will share new advances in gene therapy to cure affected births. In commemoration of International Thalassaemia Day on May 8th, Bio-Rad invites you to register for our #Test2Control Thalassemia and Sickle Cell Webinar about the past, present, and future of monitoring and treating hemoglobinopathies.

The speakers of this 60-minute webinar will:

  • Discuss effective programs for awareness and control
  • Review established testing protocols
  • Introduce recent discoveries and applications of gene therapy
