Professor Sir David Weatherall, M.D., recieves 2013 Wallace H. Coulter Award
Date:8/1/2013

The American Society of Hematology (ASH) will present the Society's highest honor, the 2013 Wallace H. Coulter Award for Lifetime Achievement in Hematology, to Professor Sir David Weatherall, MD, of the University of Oxford for his more than 50-year career in hematology combining seminal discoveries, visionary translational research leadership, and a passion for global health initiatives that have together helped improve clinical care for thousands throughout the developing world.

The Wallace H. Coulter Award for Lifetime Achievement in Hematology is bestowed on an individual who has been a vital contributor to the field of hematology, demonstrating lifetime achievement and leadership in research, practice, and education. 2013 ASH President Janis L. Abkowitz, MD, of the University of Washington will present Sir David with his award on Sunday, December 8, during the 55th ASH Annual Meeting and Exposition in New Orleans.

A true pioneer in the field, Sir David has paved the way for other physicians and scientists in refining the understanding of inherited blood disorders, particularly thalassemias and tropical diseases. Sir David began his career in 1962 after graduating with his medical degree from the University of Liverpool. After medical school, he went on serve in the British Army, receiving an assignment in the children's ward of a British military hospital in Singapore, where, after observing the plight of children with thalassemia, he began to develop a keen interest in the inherited disease.

Sir David sought additional training and research experience in the United States at The Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. In a truly groundbreaking and transformative 1965 report, Sir David and colleague John Clegg identified imbalanced globin chain production as the cause of thalassemia, a discovery that was essential to developing improved treatments and designing disease prevention efforts at both the clinical and population level
