The WFH is very pleased to announce that Ozlem Turan has received the Christine Lee Young Researcher Award. Established in 2012 by the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) and Wiley, the Christine Lee Young Researcher Award (former Christine Lee Haemophilia Journal Award) is given in recognition to a top young researcher who is the primary author and presenter of a highly rated abstract. The editor of the journal scores and selects the best presented abstract. The winner receives a ₤3,000 prize and a 3-year online subscription to Haemophilia.

Turan, who is a Clinical Research Fellow and Senior Registrar in Obstetrics and Gynaecology Royal Free Hospital NHS Trust & EGA Institute for Women’s Health, University College London, U.K., received the award for her paper, “Gynaecological problems and their management in women with moderate and severe von Willebrand Disease (VWD).”
