A fascinating overview of one of the giants in CLL research, who provided many of us with the first treatment capable of prolonging life expectancy (FCR) and for about 60% of those who are mutated IgHV, effectively a cure. From humble beginnings in Melbourne Australia, to a fulfilling career at the forefront of CLL research at M D Anderson in Texas and the creation of the CLL Global Research Foundation, Dr Keating's story illustrates what can be achieved by someone who doesn't like being bored when assisted by multiple instances of happenstance. "If you keep pursuing the answers to clinical questions, you’ll enjoy your time and benefit the patients.”
Thank you Dr Keating!
