Friday Satellite Symposium: MDS and MDS/MPN: Past, Present, and Future

ASH 2014 This satellite symposium focused on providing an in-depth and up-to-date review of research related to the biology, prognosis, natural history and therapeutic management of myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and myelodysplastic syndromes/myeloproliferative neoplasms (MDS/MPN) overlap.

The program brought together leaders in disease research and clinical practice to explore solutions to improving the care of these patient populations.

Video interviews with Symposium presenters and lay language summaries are available. 

4th International Bone Marrow Failure Disease Scientific Symposium 2014

Scientific Symposium2014

Held in March 2014, The purpose of the 2014 International symposium convened physicians treating bone marrow failure diseases and laboratory researchers studying the immunology and cell biology of bone marrow failure to discuss current areas of controversy, share recent research results and propose specific recommendations for the highest priority directions for basic and clinical research needed to advance the field.
