The Center for Hemoglobin Reseach in Minorities was founded in 2012 and primarily aims to advance the study of hemoglobinopatheis, iron metabolism, and oxygen sensing.
With an emphasis on specific impacts on the minority community, CHaRM executes
its investigative mission by:
- Educating and training minority students and fellows
- Expanding and enhancing the research advances made by the Howard University Research Scientist Program in clinical and molecular aspects of sickle cell disease, iron metabolism, and oxygen sensing
- Enhancing and facilitating existing collaborations within and outside of Howard University and share existing resources
