  • Professor of Pediatrics, Division of Hematology and Oncology, School of Medicine
  • Chief Science Officer, American Thrombosis and Hemostasis Network


Dr. Michael Recht specializes in caring for children, adolescents and young adults with bleeding and clotting disorders. He has been a part of more than 100 clinical research trials testing new treatments for children and adults with bleeding and clotting disorders. He has also been a leader in research into gene therapy for hemophilia.

Dr. Recht was the director of the Hemophilia Center at OHSU from 2007 until 2020. He was also director of the Mountain States Hemophilia Network, a collaboration of hemophilia treatment centers in the western United States. He currently serves as the Chief Science Officer for the American Thrombosis and Hemostasis Network, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of people affected by bleeding and clotting disorders.

When he's not working, Dr. Recht enjoys spending time with his wife, two young adult daughters and three dogs. He is an avid skier. During the few months when snow doesn't cover the blue and green trails on Mt. Hood, he can be found at any coast or shore.
