The International Myeloma Foundation is proud to present its second Robert A. Kyle Lifetime Achievement Award to Bart Barlogie, M.D., Professor of Medicine and Pathology, and Director of the Myeloma Institute for Research and Therapy in Little Rock, Arkansas.
Dr. Barlogie is being honored for his outstanding body of work, both clinical and research, in the field of myeloma. One of the world's leading myeloma researchers, Dr. Barlogie has made a tremendous impact on patient treatment and care. "Not only is Dr. Barlogie an expert in cancer immunology, he is a dedicated physician and champion in the fight against myeloma," said Susie Novis, IMF President. She continued, "The IMF is giving this award to recognize his tireless work to significantly improve care, treatment and prognosis for many myeloma patients."
The IMF's Robert A. Kyle Lifetime Achievement Award was established to honor an individual whose lifetime body of work furthers the ultimate goal of finding a cure for myeloma, a cancer of the bone marrow. The accolade is named after Dr. Robert A. Kyle, noted physician and founder of the Myeloma and Related Diseases Research Group at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
The award will be presented at a dinner at the Peabody Hotel in Little Rock on May 8, 2004.
