Description: The 2010 Wallace H. Coulter Award for Lifetime Achievement in Hematology was presented to Volker Diehl, MD, of the University of Cologne in Cologne, Germany for his pioneering research on Hodgkin lymphoma for more than 40 years. His scientific achievements include the discovery of the causative role of the Epstein-Barr virus in infectious mononucleosis and the study of its association with Hodgkin lymphoma. He also cultured the first notoriously fragile Hodgkin cell lines and led the development of BEACOPP, a chemotherapy regimen for the treatment of Hodgkin lymphoma. Dr. Diehl also founded the Competence Network Malignant Lymphomas in Germany, which has transformed the way patients with lymphoma are treated within the German health insurance system. Dr. Diehl has devoted his scientific life to the understanding and treatment of Hodgkin lymphoma, and his career is a great example of excellence in translational and clinical research.
