Oluwole receives National Hemophilia Foundation Diversity Fellowship
The next generation of researchers are continuously inspiring and fueling the National Hemophilia Foundation’s renewed focus on research.
Congratulations to Dr. Olubusola Oluwole, fellow (Hematology/Oncology), inaugural recipient of the Jeanne Marie Lush (JML) Diversity Fellowship, named in honor of Dr. Jeanne Marie Lusher, a distinguished clinician and researcher whose career focused on inhibitor development in factor VIII patients.
As a JML recipient, Dr. Oluwole will receive financial support over three years that will aid her clinical research. JML identifies clinicians from under-represented communities and genders who are early in their careers and supports their career interest in inherited blood and/or bleeding disorders. Oluwole was chosen for her potential to make a significant, positive impact on the future of patient care. Her passion and excitement about the advances being made in curative therapies for inherited blood disorders are evident in her research on sickle cell disease (SCD).
In receiving a JML fellowship, she said, “The Jean Marie Lusher Diversity Research Fellowship award will provide me with the support to achieve my goal of a prolific career in clinical and translational research in historically marginalized SCD patients.”
