With extended training in Pediatric Hematology, Oncology and Stem Cell Transplantation at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Dr. Kurre’s clinical work is now focused on children with bone marrow failure. He strives to provide excellence in care for families and patients across a wide spectrum of inherited and acquired conditions that lead to loss of blood formation. As a Physician Scientist, both clinical and scientific goals of his work are therefore directed at improving understanding and broadening treatment options for patients with bone marrow failure. Dr. Kurre’s laboratory has longstanding expertise in Fanconi Anemia (FA), a genetic condition with prominent hematologic complications. With training in transplantation and hematopoietic stem cell biology, he hopes to improve our understanding of the progressive hematopoietic failure in patients with BMF and FA, and broaden diagnostic approaches, and develop next generation therapies.
