"Wallace Coulter had a genius about him and the Coulter Principle transformed diagnostic hematology. Far from those glass slides, suddenly we had real descriptions of cells, in numbers, and that’s all Wallace Coulter.To me the Wallace Coulter award really puts me in a sort of company that I’m very, very proud of. And of course I have to thank those trainees of mine. This is really their award in many, many ways, so I have a lot of gratitude right now."

"Wallace Coulter…was also a bridge person between medical science and technology. The admiration I have for him is because of his ingenuity and humbleness, his great mind, and never-ending curiosity that helped him to open new avenues in science. This curiosity and daring spirit to discover new frontiers of medical science I wish [for] our young hematology colleagues who live in the most exciting period of advances in medical development of all time but so often are afraid to step on the ‘bridge over troubled water’ between basic science and clinical medicine."

"The Coulter Award is a source of great gratification to me for the time I’ve spent in a discipline that’s been extremely exciting and fulfilling. I feel that the donor of this award deserves my thanks not only because of the receipt of the award, but also because of what they’ve contributed to hematology."

"I am greatly honored and surprised to receive it. It is a great honor for not only me and my colleagues at the Mayo Clinic, but also the study of multiple myeloma. I hope the award brings more attention to the field of myeloma.”

"Coulter realized the great American dream. He built an industry that changed the way we practice hematology. Now his achievements support our work not only scientifically but also through generous philanthropy. It is therefore a very great privilege for me to accept an award bearing the Wallace Coulter name."
