New York Blood Center Enterprises’ Francesca Vinchi, PhD, Assistant Professor and Head of the Iron Research Laboratory, Lindsley F. Kimball Research Institute, recently received the competitive renewal of the Cooley’s Anemia Foundation Research Fellowship for the second year. The fellowship will support her project investigating the role of Non-Transferrin Bound Iron (NTBI) and iron toxicity in Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) complications in beta-thalassemia.

According to Cooley’s Anemia Foundation (CAF), “these Fellowship recipients were assessed on the basis of the quality of the scientific content, the academic accomplishments and future promise of the investigator, the quality of the mentor in the case of postdoctoral fellowships, and, of particular importance, the relevance of the project to the understanding and treatment of Cooley’s anemia.”
