Dr Kandice Kottke-Marchant, MD PhD, Section Head, Hemostasisand Thrombosis, Department of Clinical Pathology, The ClevelandClinic Foundation, Cleveland, Ohio, USA and President,International Society of Laboratory Hematology. She is also aProfessor of Pathology at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College ofMedicine and an Adjunct Professor of Biomedical Engineering at CaseWestern Reserve University. She has published over 100peer-reviewed publications in the field of haemostasis, is aninternational expert on platelet testing and aspirin resistance,and has served on review panels from the National Institutes ofHealth (NIH), College of American Pathologists (CAP), ISO/TC212 andNorth American Specialized Coagulation Laboratory Association(NASCOLA). She has been a driving force to increase theinternational visibility and impact of the ISLH. She has beenresponsible for running the ISLH annual Symposia since 2002. Due toher involvement in haemostasis and the ISLH, Dr. Kottke-Marchantwill be uniquely positioned to serve as one of the co-Editors ofthe Textbook of Laboratory Hematology. Elkin Simson, MD, PCAP, FACSP is the Medical Director ofthe Center for Clinical Laboratories and Hematology Laboratory atthe Mount Sinai Hospital. He is also Associate Professor and ViceChairman of the Department of Pathology at the Mount Sinai Schoolof Medicine, New York, NY, USA. Dr. Simson was formerly theVice-President for Medical and Scientific Affairs at TechniconInstruments Corporation, where he participated in the developmentof the first automated haematology analyzers to combine the CBC andWBC differential into a single instrument. Dr Simson is the PastPresident of the ISLH and is Vice-President of the InternationalCouncil for Standardization in Hematology (ICSH). He has beenChairman of the Hematology Area Committee of NCCLS (now CLSI), amember of Council of the National Reference System for the ClinicalLaboratory (NRSCL) and the Hematology and Quality ImprovementSubcommittees of the NCCCLS. He was a member of the Hematology andPathology Advisory Panel of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).Due to his long-time involvement in haematology automation andstandards organizations, Dr. Simson is an idea co-editor. The proposed section editors are chosen from internationalexperts in their respective fields; most have also been long-timeISLH members who have been faculty at one or more ISLH Symposia andwho have been repeatedly recognized as outstanding speakers andcontributors by the participants. Dr Bruce Davis is one ofthe co-founders of the ISLH and has a long history of involvementin developing automated cellular and flow cytometric technologies.Professor Alberto Orfao from Spain is one of the world sforemost experts on flow cytometry. Professor Samuel Machin iscurrently President of the British Society of Haematology and is aninternational authority on haemostasis testing. Stefanie McFaddenis a medical technologist who is sought after as a consultant forlaboratory management and informatics issues.
This is an interesting book for those with a primaryinterest in laboratory hematology. (Doody s, 7 September 2012)
