Honoree: Peter H. Wiernik, MD
Honored by: Janice P. Dutcher, MD

Under his guidance, I was given responsibility for day-to-day clinical management of the new NCI-funded high dose Interleukin-2 immunotherapy program. This opportunity motivated me to focus on ongoing clinical research in immunotherapy. I was also responsible for transfusion supportive care for the large leukemia patient service, which resulted in my becoming an author and, eventually, a co-editor of his textbook Neoplastic Diseases of the Blood — currently in its sixth edition. Dr. Wiernik’s leadership and willingness to provide opportunities for junior faculty has helped many. I want to honor his commitment through this donation to the AFMR Endowment Fund, supporting young investigator awards for the next generation of medical researchers.
