ISEH Awards

 

 

   

2020 Donald Metcalf Award

Recipient: Harvey Lodish

 
As lead author of the textbook Molecular Cell Biology, Harvey Lodish is probably one of the most widely recognized scientists from the field of Experimental Hematology. Over several decades, Harvey’s group at the Whitehead Institute (MIT) has cloned and characterized many proteins important for red cell development and function, beginning with the cloning of the GLUT1, Band3 and Epo receptor genes in the 1980’s. Recent work in Harvey’s group focused on characterizing novel genes important for the terminal stages of erythropoiesis, including chromatin condensation and enucleation, as well as the regulation of self-renewal, proliferation, and differentiation of erythroid progenitor cells by glucocorticoids and oxygen. 

 

 

2020 McCulloch & Till Award

Recipient: Mark Dawson

 

Professor Mark Dawson is a clinician-scientist group leader at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in Melbourne, Australia, where his group studies epigenetic regulation in normal and malignant haematopoiesis. Mark completed his clinical training in Melbourne, followed by a PhD and PostDoc in Cambridge (UK), where he described one of the first examples of how a signaling kinase can directly influence transcription, and identified a new therapeutic strategy for acute myeloid leukaemia by targeting the BET bromodomain proteins that function as epigenetic readers. This work helped set the platform for clinical trials with this first in class epigenetic therapy.

 

 


 

 

 

2020 Janet Rowley Award

Recipient: Jennifer Trowbridge

 

Jennifer Trowbridge is an Associate Professor at the Jackson Laboratory in Bar Harbor. Jennifer studied for her undergraduate and PhD degrees at the University of Western Ontario, followed by postdoctoral training at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Children’s Hospital Boston. The Trowbridge laboratory studies cell fate regulation within the hematopoietic system, with a current focus on the epigenetic regulation of hematopoietic stem cells and progenitor cell lineage commitment. The group recently developed an innovative mouse model that recapitulates progression of clonal hematopoiesis to blood cancer as it occurs in humans, which offers a new resource for basic biological studies as well as for testing therapeutic modalities in an in vivo setting. 

 

 
 


 

2021 ISEH Society Awards

The call for 2021 ISEH Society Award nominations will open in fall 2020.

 

New Investigator Awards

Established in 1999, the New Investigator Awards support the work of ISEH junior investigators and acknowledge the need for the continual stimulation of new ideas and exciting avenues of investigation within the experimental hematology field. These awards are given on the basis of Annual Scientific Meeting

presentations. New Investigator Awards are awarded based upon sponsorship fulfillment. In order to be eligible for the New Investigators Awards, new investigators must submit an abstract during the Call for Abstracts and indicate that they would like to be considered for the award.
