MCW Oncologist Named First Armand J. Quick/William F. Stapp Professor in Hematology

Nov. 29, 2012

Parameswaran Hari, M.D., M.S., associate professor of medicine in the division of hematology and oncology, has been named the first Armand J. Quick/William F. Stapp Professor in Hematology at the Medical College of Wisconsin. Dr. Hari is an internationally renowned researcher in multiple myeloma, and serves as director of the adult Blood and Marrow Transplant Program (BMT) at Froedtert Hospital. He is also the scientific director for the plasma cells disorder working committee at the Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research.

The late Dr. Quick was Chairman of the Department of Biochemistry at Marquette University School of Medicine (the Medical College of Wisconsin’s predecessor institution) from 1944-1964. His research in the fields of blood clotting and the diagnosis and treatment of bleeding disorders brought him international recognition. He is best known for developing the “Quick Prothrombin Time,” a clinical blood test to diagnose bleeding disorders and monitor dosage of anticoagulation therapy that was a critical driver of research in the field, and is still used widely.

The Armand J. Quick/William F. Stapp Professorship was established this year by MCW from an endowment provided by the late Dr. Stapp, an MCW alumnus (1951), and his family to honor the memory of Dr. Quick and to provide support to a leader in hematology research and practice.

Dr. Hari joined MCW in 2004. He received his M.B.B.S. in 1992 from the University of Kerala in India, and his M.D. in 1995 from the Jawaharlal Institute of Post Graduate Medicine in India. He completed fellowships in internal medicine and hematology at The Royal College of Physicians and the Royal College of Pathologists in the United Kingdom in 1997 and 2000, and in medical oncology and transplantation at MCW in 2004.

Dr. Hari has published more than 100 peer-reviewed journal articles, reviews, and abstracts. As a clinician, he has been recognized as a Best Doctor in America, and recently received the Patient Appreciation Award from the Wisconsin chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. He was also the 2011 recipient of the MCW Department of Medicine’s prestigious Engstrom Award for Clinical Contributions.

“We are grateful to the Stapp family for their generous gift, which will support and advance Dr. Hari’s work in multiple myeloma and other cancers of the blood,” said John R. Raymond, Sr., M.D., president and CEO of MCW.
