|Eberhard F. Mammen Most Popular Article Award Winners|
2012 Award Winners
Giuseppe Lippi, Massimo Franchini, Emmanuel J. Favaloro, Giovanni Targher
Microparticles in Cancer
Dr. Rak about his article: “It is always exciting to trace the links between the key concepts, and revisit how independent research streams forced us to pay attention to microparticles in the context of malignancy. I suspect that subconsciously I also attempted to justify the meanderings of my own scientific journey and curiosity. I suspect that similarly minded readers may have enjoyed this aspect, but the reception probably reflects our heightened collective interest in vesiculation as a biological process.”
2011 Award Winners
Magdalena Sobieraj-Teague, Martin O’Donnell and John Eikelboom
Guglielmo Mariani and Francesco Bernardi
Factor VII Deficiency
Dr Mariani and Dr Barnardi are longtime collaborators and co-authors on the topic of factor VII deficiency. Their award-winning article was written while they were respectively at the University of Aquila and the University of Ferrara, both in Italy.

Jawed Fareed, Debra A. Hoppensteadt, Daniel Fareed,
The final award in 2010 is for an article by Jawed Fareed and an international group of colleagues working on anticoagulants.

Dr Fareed and Dr Hoppensteadt work together at the Loyola University Medical Center. Their main area of research is the development of newer tests for the diagnosis of thrombosis and the objective elevation of newer drugs to treat thrombosis and cardiovascular disease.
2009 Award Winners
Bruno Girolami and Antonio Girolami
Antonio and Bruno Girolami are a father and son co-authorship team. Antonio first met Eberhard Mammen about 25 years ago at the Meeting of the American Society of Hematology, and met him several times thereafter at various international meetings. The invitation to write the article came from the Guest Editor for that issue of Seminars in Thrombosis and Hemostasis (Paolo Prandoni) in consultation with Eberhard.
Kerstin Jurk and Beate E. Kehrel
The invitation for Beate Kehrel to write her article came personally from Eberhard while at an international meeting, and both Beate and her co-author (Kerstin Jurk) were very happy to hear the news that they had won this award. In Beate's own words "Both of us love platelets and feel that we need to make scientists and medical doctors more familiar with the cinderellas of the blood cells".
Dr Emmanuel J Favaloro, the Editor in Chief of Seminars in Thrombosis and Hemostasis, met up with both Beate Kehrel and Kerstin Jurk at the recent ISTH meeting in Boston, and they expressed a wish to contribute further articles for this journal in the near future.
