Foundation for Sickle Cell Disease Research (FSCDR) was founded by Dr. Lanetta Bronté in December 2012 after working closely with the sickle cell community and noticing the extreme lack of care for a disease that affects 3 million people nationwide. Dr. Bronté serves as principal investigator on grants and industry-sponsored trials in sickle cell disease.

The FSCDR is a comprehensive, non-profit organization that provides a platform for researchers, healthcare providers, and those living with sickle cell disease. Working collaboratively with academia, pharmaceutical, biotechnology and community organizations, the best practices are identified to help with the management and future care for sickle cell patients.

We are accepting new patients daily and also offer free screenings. Know your sickle cell status! To enroll in the program, call the Foundation at 954-397-3251 or visit us at or email

The Sickle Cell Care Coordination Initiative

The Sickle Cell Care Coordination Initiative (SCCCI) seeks to improve care provided to youth and adults with sickle cell disease in Northern California. We are one of 8 programs in the U.S. funded by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) to use implementation science to improve outcomes for individuals with sickle cell disease between the ages of 15 and 45 years.

The SCCCI brings together experts in sickle cell disease clinical care and clinical research, health services research, implementation and participatory research and emergency medicine. Their core team also includes individuals with sickle cell disease, their family members and dedicated community members.

Their aims are:
-increase the number of youth and adults with sickle cell disease who receive preventive care;
-support providers so they increase their adherence with evidence-based guidelines for sickle cell disease care; and
-support youth and adults with sickle cell disease to access needed resources within their communities to improve their quality of life and quality of care. The primary goal of the center is to decrease the preventable morbidity and mortality that this population is vulnerable to.
