James George, MD: 2012 ASH Wallace H. Coulter Award for Lifetime Achievement in Hematology
Date:8/27/2012

The Wallace H. Coulter Award for Lifetime Achievement in Hematology is bestowed on an individual who has demonstrated a lifetime commitment and made outstanding contributions to hematology, and who has made a significant impact on education, research, and practice. This award will be presented to Dr. George at 1:15 p.m. on Sunday, December 9, during the 54th ASH Annual Meeting and Exposition in Atlanta.

Dr. George, who holds the George Lynn Cross Research Professorship in the Departments of Medicine and Biostatistics & Epidemiology at OUHSC, is a pioneer in the field of platelet glycoproteins. His early research focused on the radiolabeling of platelet surface components and their analysis by sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS)-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. Through these methods, in 1984 Dr. George and colleagues were able to describe the molecular basis of platelet function in hemostasis, one of his signature research achievements. Dr. George's original research is documented in more than 100 publications in peer-reviewed journals.

Dr. George's seminal work related to the diagnosis and clinical management of idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) and thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) has shaped the field's modern understanding of platelet disorders. The cornerstone of Dr. George's current work in TTP is his initiation and maintenance of the Oklahoma Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura-Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (TTP-HUS) Registry, which has led to an increase in clinical knowledge of this rare disorder. Since Dr. George created the registry of all patients with clinically diagnosed TTP or HUS in central-western Oklahoma in 1989, it has uncovered important insights regarding clinical presentations and outcomes, predictors of disease severity, and the role of ADAMTS13 testing in TTP-HUS. Registry data have led to numerous manuscripts in the scientific literature over the past 20 years which have included the participation of many stude
