The American Society of Hematology honors Andrew S. Weyrich, Ph.D., with 2013 William Dameshek Prize

coagulation. Further, this research provides the physiological mechanism to explain a long-standing observation that protein synthesis occurs in platelets under specific circumstances. Dr. Weyrich's research has very broad implications from basic platelet biology to the role of platelets in the disease process, especially those considered to be outside of hemostasis and thrombosis pathways.

The importance of Dr. Weyrich's work is evidenced through the publication of his research in many high-impact journals, his involvement in ASH and other prominent organizations, and his receipt of several prestigious awards. His research has been published more than 100 times and has appeared in top journals such as Blood, Cell, Circulation, the Journal of Clinical Investigation, the Journal of Experimental Medicine, the Journal of Immunology, the Journal of Thrombosis and Hemostasis, and Nature Genetics. Dr. Weyrich recently served as Chair of ASH's Scientific Committee on Platelets and currently serves on the American Heart Association's Council on Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology. Most recently, Dr. Weyrich was awarded the Investigator Recognition Award at the XXIII Congress of the International Society on Thrombosis and Hemostasis and received the Outstanding Membership award from The Children's Health Research Center at The University of Utah.

"ASH is pleased to honor Dr. Weyrich for innovative, paradigm-shifting work that has placed him at the forefront of redefining platelet function," said ASH President Janis L. Abkowitz, MD, of the University of Washington. "His outstanding studies have changed our understanding of the hemostatic functions of platelets, and more importantly, the role of platelets in inflammation, infection, and angiogenesis. We look forward to seeing how his work will continue to move the field of platelet biology forward."
