Wilbur Lam, associate professor of pediatrics at Emory School of Medicine and the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University, was just selected as the recipient of the Frank Oski Lectureship Memorial Award. The award recognizes an outstanding clinical or laboratory investigator conducting cutting-edge research in the field of pediatric hematology/oncology. As this year’s national award recipient, Lam will give a plenary talk at the annual meeting of the American Society of Pediatric Hematology in the spring of 2019.
Lam's research interests involve developing and applying novel technologies using micro/nanotechnology, microfluidics, and cell mechanics to research, diagnose, and treat hematologic and oncologic processes. Lam earned his Ph.D. in bioengineering from the University of California, Berkley, and received his M.D. from the Baylor College of Medicine.
