Fred Hutchinson Research Center awarded $7 million grant

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (October 2, 2002) - The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (the Society) announced it has awarded a $7 million grant through its Specialized Center of Research (SCOR) program to Dr. Irwin Bernstein, head of pediatric oncology research at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle. Dr. Bernstein will accept the award in Washington, D.C. at the Society's Journey of Hope Research Award Dinner tomorrow night. The dinner will to be hosted by ABC News veteran Sam Donaldson.

SCOR is the Society's most ambitious research program and one of the largest coordinated efforts to combat leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma and Hodgkin's disease with funding that rivals federal support for blood cancers. Through SCOR grants, teams of researchers representing different disciplines focus on improving the treatment and diagnosis of blood cancers.

The research initiative, conducted by Dr. Bernstein and a team of internationally recognized researchers, is aimed at developing less toxic and more effective immune-based therapies for treating advanced leukemia and lymphoma. The researchers will attempt to harness immune cells and antibodies to selectively kill cancerous cells. In addition to Dr. Bernstein, who pioneered monoclonal antibody therapy for leukemia as well as the development, with Wyeth-Ayerst, of a monoclonal drug conjugate known as Mylotarg, the research team includes scientists from Fred Hutchinson and the University of Washington Academic Medical Center: Dr. Rainer Storb, head of transplantation biology at Fred Hutchinson and pioneer of non-myeloablative stem-cell transplantation (mini transplants) also one of the researchers who developed bone-marrow transplantation. Drs. Philip Greenberg, head of immunology at Fred Hutchinson, and Stanley Riddell, discoverers of a technique known as Rapid Expansion Method (REM), the technology used to expand antigen-specific T cells for use in adoptive immunotherapy techniques.
