American Society of Hematology Selects Dr.Yang Mei to Receive the Global Research Award

[Changsha, Aug. 23] – Hunan University (HNU) is pleased to announce that the professor Yang Mei has been selected by the American Society of Hematology (ASH) to receive the 2021 ASH Global Research Award. Dr. Mei is one of nine talented early-career investigators selected for this honor.

Through the ASH Global Research Award, ASH helps ease this difficult transition for researchers outside the United States and Canada by providing partial salary or other support during that critical period, allowing recipients to pursue research projects that will help them get to the next step in their careers.

The nine researchers selected for this year represent ten countries: Australia, Brazil, China, India, Italy, Nigeria, Portugal, Singapore, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.

Dr. Mei will receive research support for his project on Roles of Inflammation in Leukemic Transformation in Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS).

“I am deeply honored to receive this award, and would like to appreciate ASH for promoting the global hematologic studies as well as the early-career academic development for our young investigators.” said Dr. Mei.

“The recipients of the ASH Global Research Award will conduct valuable research that will help increase hematology capacity in their home countries,” said 2021 ASH President Martin S. Tallman, MD, of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. “Through the ASH Global Research Award, we are able to support the career growth of these future leaders and nurture collaboration across borders, fostering a diverse, global hematology research workforce.”

Hunan University (HNU) is located at the foot of the picturesque Yuelu Mountain and on the west bank of the rippling Xiangjiang River in the historically and culturally renowned City of Changsha, the capital of Hunan Province. It is remarkably recognized as an "Ancient Millenarian Academy, Famous Centennial University". HNU, enrolled in project 211/985 and the project of building world-class universities, is one of the country's leading research and teaching universities in central China.
