New York Times Interviews Sir David Weatherall
October 12, 2010 – An interview with Sir David Weatherall, focusing on his work in thalassemia, can be found in the October 12, 2010 edition of the New York Times.
The interview was written by Claudia Dreifus from conversations with Sir David during his recent visit to New York to accept the Lasker-Koshland Special Achievement Award (click here to learn more about Sir David being named recipient of this honor).
In the interview, which can be accessed by clicking here, Sir David talks about his introduction to thalassemia and how his interest in this area developed, as well as what some of his work has entailed. He also mentions that he intends to use his prize money to “look into a form of Asian thalassemia where there’s a strong hint that a high proportion of the kids might be able to go through their lives with low hemoglobin and without transfusions.”
CAF again congratulates Sir David for being recognized with this prestigious award and thanks him for his remarkable commitment and dedication to those with thalassemia.
