The loss of Professor Holyoake is a massive blow to the CML community and a sad loss to her family. Below, you can find a link to a page of remembrance.

Professor Holyoake was a world-leader on Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML) achieving outstanding results in CML. Through her research, she developed methods to purify the cells of leukaemia patients. Her most recent study analysed both CML and normal blood stem cells and the key to the survival of CML stem cells. The team led by Professor Holyoake then developed a drug combination to simultaneously target these critical proteins and kill the CML stem cells.

The page will be collated with comments from CML patients all over the world. Most won’t have known her, but many will have benefitted from her work.

It would be nice to show our appreciation, the tributes and photos will be used in a Memorial Book for her family.

Thank you. Kris
