Professor John Snowden, Consultant Haematologist at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, has been presented with a national award by the blood cancer charity Anthony Nolan. He won the award for Clinical Supporter of the Year at the Anthony Nolan Supporter Awards 2016.

The Awards, now in their fourth year, celebrate, recognise and thank the outstanding supporters who keep the pioneering blood cancer charity moving forward. Professor Snowden was joined by campaigners, fundraisers, volunteers, MPs, lifesaving stem cell donors and celebrities at the ceremony at the House of Commons.

Professor Snowden has supported and promoted Anthony Nolan for many years. He is also the Director of Blood and Marrow Transplantation at Sheffield and promotes the work of the charity in all aspects of his work. Sheffield is the only centre outside London which has facilities to collect stem cells from Anthony Nolan donors.

His research into stem cell transplants could not only benefit people with blood cancer but could also prevent and reduce disability in multiple sclerosis.

'I’m incredibly proud of the research and work that my team and I have done so far to improve the lives of people with blood cancer,' said Professor Snowden. ‘Winning this award is not just about my work but also for my many colleagues who have supported and worked with me.’
