Dr. Peter NowellASIP Mourns the Loss of former ASEP President Peter C. Nowell
Dr. Peter Nowell passed away on Monday, December 26, 2016 at the age of 88. Dr. Nowell is best known for his ground-breaking work identifying the Philadelphia chromosome in patients with chronic myelogenous leukemia, the first evidence of cancer as a genetic disease. Dr. Nowell made many other research contributions, especially in cytogenetics and evolution of cancer. Dr. Nowell became a member of the American Society for Experimental Pathology (ASEP, predecessor to ASIP) in 1961 and was President of ASEP from 1970 – 1971. He received the Parke-Davis Award (predecessor of the ASIP Outstanding Investigator Award) in 1965 and the Rous-Whipple Award in 1986, in addition to many other prestigious awards from other organizations.
