Prof. Franck Morschhauser becomes President of LYSA and LYSARC

Present since the beginnings of LYSA, Prof. Franck Morschhauser joined the Presidency of LYSA and LYSARC in May 2020. He succeeds Gilles Salles who joined The Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York.

Franck Morschhauser is Professor and Head of the Hematology Department at the CHRU de Lille.

“ Much progress has been made over the last few years to better understand the development of this cancer (often little known by the wider public), improve its diagnosis and especially its treatment. We are proud to have contributed to this progress with the work of the LYSA network, but we are aware of the work yet to be done.

This is why, while continuing our structuration and our collaborations, we aim to deploy research at the top edge of medical and scientific innovations, and thus hope to improve treatments even further for the patients of tomorrow. ”
