Dr. Manwani’s research focuses on fetal hemoglobin activating agents, adhesive cellular interactions in vaso-occlusion in sickle cell disease (SCD) and contribution of neutrophils to SCD pathophysiology. She completed the R01 funded Phase 1 study of IVIG in the treatment of SCD vaso-occlusive crises and is currently leading the R01 funded Phase II study. Dr. Manwani is currently participating in studies aimed at increased adherence to hydroxyurea and improved transition to adult care. She is also collaborating with investigators at Case Western Reserve University on an NHLBI R01 funded study to standardize monitoring of cellular adhesion in SCD patients using a novel microfluidic assay. Her contributions have been recognized by the Sickle Cell Thalassemia Patient Network of New York in the form of the Distinguished Service Award in March 2015. Dr. Manwani’s studies have been published nationally in various reviewed journals and books.
