Iron and Heme Metabolism, Iron Chelation

The Iron and Heme Metabolism, Iron Chelation program supports work on the regulation of iron absorption, utilization, and storage.  Specific areas of interest include: mechanisms underlying disordered iron utilization and sequestration; genetic determinants of inherited and acquired iron overload disorders; heme synthesis, transport, and metabolism; porphyrias; noninvasive measurement of organ and tissue iron load; and iron chelators and chelation therapy.​​​​​​​​​​​
