After obtaining her PhD from the University of Paris, Dr El Hoss was awarded a Marie Sklodowska Curie Postdoctoral Research Fellowship for conducting her postdoctoral research in the Red Cell Hematology Laboratory at King’s College London. Dr El Hoss has made important contributions to the understanding of the pathophysiology of sickle cell disease (SCD) and her research has notably evidenced that ineffective erythropoiesis is a hallmark of SCD. Her current research focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms of ineffective erythropoiesis in SCD with the aim of developing new therapeutic approaches that could ameliorate this altered process in patients. Together with clinician colleagues and research collaborators, she is also developing a red cell platform that will be used to investigate red cell properties in health and disease at KCL that will be part of the translational sickle cell disease research program headed by Pr. Strouboulis.
