Luisanna Sánchez Ventura, MD
Dr. Luisanna Sánchez Ventura began her pediatric hematology and oncology fellowship training in 2020. She is board certified in pediatrics by the American Board of Pediatrics.
She developed a special interest in children with blood disorders while volunteering at a local children's hospital in the Dominican Republic, where she later came to lead an important role as founder of the Hematology and Oncology Interest Group at the university.
She served as the local clinical coordinator for the Stroke Avoidance for Children in República Dominicana (SACRED) trial— among the largest and most important screening and treatment studies involving sickle cell anemia in the Caribbean.
In 2019, she received the Research Innovation in Support of Excellence (RISE) Award, a grant that supported her research analyzing candidate genetic variants that are believed to modify stroke risk in patients with sickle cell anemia. As a physician-scientist, Dr. Ventura looks forward to conducting research that will improve the lives of children, especially by granting early access to screening and treatment of hematologic disorders, such as sickle cell anemia.
