Stratton Medal for Basic Science for her “seminal contributions in the area of hematology research” over the summer.
Dr. Speck accepted her award on Tuesday, December 8 during the 57th ASH Annual Meeting and Exposition in Orlando.
She also co-leads the Hematologic Malignancies Program at Penn’s Abramson Cancer Center and is an investigator at the Abramson Family Cancer Research Institute.
