The primary clinical area of interest for Sherif Badawy, MD, is children and adolescents with chronic health conditions, including sickle cell disease, thalassemia, hemophilia, acute lymphoblastic leukemia, and chronic myeloid leukemia. Dr. Badawy’s major research focus relates to health services and outcomes research, in particular the use and implementation of technology-based interventions and wireless health devices in different settings. His short-term goal is to become an independent, externally funded clinical investigator in non-malignant and malignant hematology and become an expert in mobile health (mHealth) and behavioral intervention research methodology. His long-term goals are to become a leader in the field of pediatric hematology/oncology and implement technology-based interventions for monitoring and improving patient reported outcomes, medication adherence, and self-management skills in patients with chronic hematological conditions, both malignant and non-malignant. Dr. Badawy’s related long-term research goals are to better understand and treat hemoglobinopathies and other chronic health conditions through outreach initiatives.
