Miscellaneous Information

Dr. Hartung’s clinical efforts focus on pediatric non-malignant blood disorders, with a specific emphasis on the diagnosis and management of children with inherited and acquired bone marrow failure syndromes. As a member of the Division of Hematology and the Bone Marrow Failure Center, his goal is to ensure state-of-the-art diagnostics for patients with suspected bone marrow failure syndromes and to assist in the development of optimal treatment plans.

His clinical and translational research focuses on Diamond-Blackfan anemia (DBA); specifically understanding genetic mechanisms that modulate disease severity in DBA and other red cell disorders, in an effort to improve existing treatment strategies. In addition, Dr. Hartung is interested in variant analysis of whole exome sequencing (WES) in children with congenital disorders of unknown origin, utilizing the sequence analysis pipeline established in Drs. Bessler’s and Mason’s laboratory, in collaboration with the Center of Biomedical Informatics at CHOP.
