The International Society for Advancement of Cytometry presented its 2012 awards at CYTO 2012
Date:7/23/2012

Dr. Leon Terstappen received the 2012 Mack Fulwyler Award for Innovative Excellence, the Society's highest award. The award was established in memory of Mack J. Fulwyler, the inventor of the electrostatic cell sorter, and recognizes an individual who has demonstrated outstanding innovation. Dr. Terstappen received his Ph.D. in Applied Physics from the University of Twente in 1987, and carried out pioneering cytometry research at Becton Dickinson. In 1994, he cofounded Immunicon, which pioneered the detection of tumor cells in the blood of cancer patients. The resulting CellSearch assay was subsequently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Upon the sale of Immunicon by a Johnson & Johnson subsidiary, Dr. Terstappen returned to the University of Twente as a Professor in 2007. He has published over 170 papers and is an inventor on 43 patents.

Dr. Robert Leif received the 2012 Membership Award. Dr. Leif was recognized for his significant contributions to cytometry technology, which included a sample preparation device for cytology, a unique flow cell used in a commercial hematology analyzer, and the BrdU method for measuring cell proliferation. He is also an inventor of optical devices, and through that area of interest established cytometry as one of the focus areas of the optical engineering society SPIE. For many years, Dr. Leif has organized and co-chaired a conference at SPIE's Photonics West meeting that has contributed to bridging between optical science and cytometry. As a founding member of ISAC, Dr. Leif has always been active in the Society. He has served on the editorial board of Cytometry, the Society's journal, and has been active in establishing data standards.

Drs. Jan Visser and Peter Lansdorp received Distinguished Service Awards for their contributions to the Society. Dr. Visser has been involved the field of cytometry for several decades. He has been a teacher, researcher, leader, editor and e
