Dr. Jonathan Roberts is currently a pediatric hematology and oncology fellow with the Medical College of Wisconsin and the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. His fellowship mentor will be Joan Gill, MD, Professor of Pediatrics at the Medical College of Wisconsin and Director of the Comprehensive Center for Bleeding Disorders (CCBD) at the BloodCenter of Wisconsin. Roberts graduated with honors from Greenville College, Illinois, and received his MD from Southern Illinois University School of Medicine. He did his residency in Pediatrics at the University of Illinois at Peoria and Children's Hospital of Illinois, where he also distinguished himself, receiving awards of excellence for critical care and research. During his pediatric residency, Roberts worked with Dr. Michael Tarantino to initiate a clinical research trial to assess the role of FXIII on intraventricular hemorrhage in premature, low birth weight infants. As a NHF-Baxter Clinical Fellow, Roberts will receive focused training and gain clinical experience through the hemostasis clinics at CCBD and further develop his research skills in a project to develop a new ELISA-based assay for assigning VWF phenotype. Roberts has plans to pursue a Master's Degree in Clinical and Translational Science. His goal is to become an expert physician/scientist with a long-term career focus on hemophilia, and other bleeding and clotting disorders.
