Description: In 1910, Dr. James B. Herrick, an attending physician at Presbyterian Hospital and professor of medicine at Rush Medical College in Chicago, Illinois, published an article on the case of an anemic West Indian patient1. Herrick’s clinical and laboratory findings of the patient’s "peculiar elongated and sickle-shaped” red blood corpuscles represent the first description of sickle cell anemia in Western medical literature.

To mark the centennial of the publication of Herrick’s case report, experts will examine the history and societal impact of the disease and place the disease within the context of existing and future basic, translational and clinical research. Invited speakers will address unresolved challenges and the ongoing burden of the disease. They will also focus on genetic, cellular and clinical perspectives across the lifespan, as well as existing therapeutic options and possible future treatments.
