Hematology is a specialty that covers everything to do with blood: its origin in the bone marrow, diseases of blood and their treatments. The latest data on research and development within the spectrum of hematology are presented. The Congress is aimed at health professionals working or interested in the field of hematology. The scientific topics range from stem cell physiology and development, to leukemia; lymphoma; diagnosis and treatment; red blood cells; white blood cells and platelet disorders; hemophilia and myeloma; thrombosis and bleeding disorders as well as transfusion and stem cell transplantation.
A number of sessions in the Congress program are dedicated to more general health care issues such as:
The Advocacy track will address Personalized Medicine from different perspectives;
The EHA-ASH joint symposium will cover the topic delivering health care in the era of economic crisis. And the EHA-ESH joint symposium handles, in an interactive session for hematologists and patients, the question: What do you mean, I can ‘ t have the treatment?
State-of-the-art science will also be presented.
