Nicholas J. Short, MD, of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, received the 2019 Joanne Levy, MD, Memorial Award for Outstanding Achievement at the 2019 American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting & Exposition in Orlando.
This annual award (which includes a $3,500 grant) was established in 2006 to recognize the current ASH Scholar with the highest scoring abstract for the ASH Annual Meeting, as determined by the appointed abstract reviewers. The award is given in honor of a past Scholar Award recipient and distinguished member of ASH, Joanne Levy, who died in 2004. It is made possible by the Levy family to continue her legacy and promote excellence in hematology research.
Dr. Short, who is Assistant Professor in the Department of Leukemia, Division of Cancer Medicine, at MD Anderson, was honored for his oral abstract, “Updated Results of a Phase II Study of Reduced-Intensity Chemotherapy with Mini–Hyper-CVD in Combination with Inotuzumab Ozogamicin, With or Without Blinatumomab, in Older Adults With Newly Diagnosed Philadelphia Chromosome–Negative Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.”
