The American Society of Hematology (ASH) recently announced that the following trainees received the highest-scoring abstracts in the categories of undergraduate student, medical student, graduate student, resident physician, and postdoctoral fellow for the 58th ASH Annual Meeting, December 3-6, in San Diego.
“I am delighted to recognize these talented early-career researchers for their outstanding contributions to the study of hematology,” said 2016 ASH President Charles S. Abrams, MD, of the University of Pennsylvania. “These individuals are shining examples of the promise of the next generation of scientists, and I am pleased that ASH provides the opportunity for rising stars to gain recognition by presenting their work in front of thousands of their distinguished colleagues from all over the world.”

Giuseppe Bigi Memorial Award
The ASH Giuseppe Bigi Memorial Award was established in 2015 to recognize an Italian trainee (undergraduate student, medical student, graduate student, resident physician, or post-doctoral fellow) based at an Italian institution who has the highest-scoring abstract submitted in the field of hematopoiesis and stem cells. This annual award is made possible by a generous grant from the Giuseppe Bigi Association, named for the late Giuseppe Bigi, MD, a well-known Italian scientist. The 2016 recipient is:
Mary Rodes Gibson Memorial Award in Hemostasis and Thrombosis

This annual award honoring excellence in hemostasis and thrombosis is made possible by the Mary Rodes Gibson Hemostasis-Thrombosis Foundation to continue the legacy of Mary Rodes Gibson, who suffered from severe, type 3 von Willebrand disease.
This award will be presented during the invited speaker session of the Special Symposium on the Basic Science of Hemostasis and Thrombosis on Monday, December 5, from 4:30–6:00 PM, in Ballroom 20BC in the San Diego Convention Center. The 2016 recipient is:
