The meeting is described by ASH as, “The premier event in malignant and non-malignant hematology”, and will showcase the best scientific research in these fields. The conference will include standard oral sessions of the best selected abstracts, poster sessions, as well as ‘scientific spotlight sessions’ and the opportunity to ‘meet the scientist’. Smaller ‘special interest sessions’ have been scheduled targeting both scientists and practicing hematologists, covering topics such as ‘How to Get published in a Peer-Reviewed Journal’ as well as a special education session on ‘New ASH Clinical Practice Guidelines on Venous Thromboembolism (VTE)’, and a networking reception for female hematologists. Such sessions will contribute to an all-round educational experience, with numerous training opportunities available, in addition to the opportunity to meet with leading scientific researchers and clinicians from a global community of more than 25,000 attendees.
The Multiple Myeloma Hub will be covering key highlights from ASH 2017 including oral sessions, late breaking abstracts, video interviews with key thought leaders and educational sessions, with a focus on the latest MM research that impacts clinical practice.
