The University of Southampton’s Professor of Immunology, Freda Stevenson (CS) has been awarded the prestigious Rai-Binet Medal by the International Workshop on Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia for her outstanding contribution to our understanding of CLL in helping to characterise different subtypes of the disease. Her work has revealed that patients may now have better information on how the disease is likely to progress.  In addition there are new therapies based on these findings that can be applied to this leukaemia. You can listen to an interview with Freda, conducted shortly after receiving her medal.
