Titus HJ Huisman Hemoglobinopathy Lab

Our History

Dr. Titus H. J. Huisman (1959-95) led hemoglobin research and later the Sickle Cell Center. His laboratory discovered a large number of the approximately 700 known hemoglobin variants and enticed scientists and researchers from all parts of the world to come to the Medical College of Georgia, now a vital part of Augusta University.

In June 2000, a dedication ceremony was held in memory of Dr. Huisman and the Laboratory was officially named "Titus H. J. Huisman Hemoglobinopathy Laboratory."
