Prof. Suthat Fucharoen, M.D., is a Professor 11 at the Institute of Science and Technology for Research and Development, Mahidol University. He has continuously been conducting research on thalassemia, and his findings provide insights into different types of genetic abnormality that lead to thalassemia in Thai population. He also developed methods in diagnosis of fetal abnormality, which could be carried out through diagnosis of genetic abnormality during the antenatal care. It became a novel approach to control and prevent newborn thalassemic patient in Thailand. Furthermore, he studied the interaction of genetic defect and the different degree of disease severity, which increases our understanding of abnormality in blood clotting in thalassemic patients that occurs more rapid than among normal person. This abnormal condition leads to the treatment using anticoagulation drugs, such as aspirin. He also studied the pathophysiology of iron deficiency as well as the benefits of using iron chelating agents. He also collaborated with both domestic and foreign organizations in creating the thalassemia research network.

The Outstanding Researcher Awardee would receive 300,000 Baht, Outstanding Researcher Award medal, and honorary certificate at the National Innovation Day 2009 at IMPACT Muang Thong Thani.
