The Scott Murphy Memorial Lecture was established in 2007 by the BEST Collaborative in recognition of the tremendous contribution of the late Dr. Scott Murphy, a past chair of the BEST Collaborative, had made to the field of transfusion medicine and to the science of platelet storage. The BEST Collaborative is encouraging junior faculty involved in the broadly understood field of transfusion medicine to apply for this unique award. The recipient of the next award will be invited to present during the BEST Virtual Meeting and to network with our members.
