Fenwal Scientist Receives Research Award for Work on Photopheresis Therapy
Date:5/27/2010

han 10 years. The award will be presented to Radwanski at an ASFA luncheon Friday, May 29, 2010 at 12:30 p.m. Central Time at the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel.

"Receiving the ASFA Junior Investigator Award is a great honor and testament to Katherine Radwanski's talents as a biomedical researcher," said William H. Cork, Fenwal chief technology officer and senior vice president.  "Her work is of great benefit to the transfusion-medicine community, and may lead to more options for U.S. clinicians as well as cancer patients."

Radwanski is the first recipient of ASFA's junior investigator award who works for a commercial organization.  Past recipients include Gregory Pomper, M.D., from Yale University; and Jeffrey Winters, M.D., from Mayo Clinic.  

Radwanski earned her master's degree in biotechnology from Northwestern University, where she also earned a bachelor's degree in biomedical engineering.  She leads research at Fenwal on next-generation blood collection technologies and storage solutions.  Her previous publications include studies on the assessment of red blood cells and platelets stored with additive solutions.  

About the study

Photopheresis is primarily used to reduce skin symptoms associated with cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL), with research underway for other cell-related diseases. Apoptosis refers to programmed cell death, which is thought to be the first step in the mechanism of action of photopheresis treatment.
