EHA-SWG Scientific Meeting on Red Cell and Iron Metabolism Defects: From basic science to clinical case application

November 7-9, 2019

Madrid, Spain

  This second edition EHA-SWG Scientific Meeting will examine the red cell and iron biology in relation to the erythropoietic differentiation process. Human beings produce billions of red cells on a daily basis. We would like to examine this machinery and underline the mechanisms that allow this enormous cell production in order to better understand the alterations responsible for red blood cell disorders. This meeting will offer attendees the opportunity to improve their understanding of the learning protocols for differential diagnosis and treatment of different types of anemias, from clinical observation.

Disease Models & Mechanisms Meeting 2019 ‘Blood disorders: models, mechanisms and therapies’

29 September - 1 October 2019

Boston, USA

Advancing basic research findings to the clinic remains a daunting task. Researchers in the field of hematopoiesis have made significant progress in this regard by taking discoveries from model organisms to the clinic. Such advances, including bone marrow transfers, stem cell replacements and immunotherapies, have also had a large impact on the treatment of non-blood disorders. This meeting on blood disorders and their treatment, organised by the journal Disease Models & Mechanisms, is curated by Editor-in-Chief Monica Justice, Nancy Speck, Paresh Vyas and Leonard Zon. The meeting will bring together diverse front-line researchers, stimulating discussions across basic research and clinical disciplines, and fostering collaborative links among researchers. Talks will feature basic research advances acquired across multiple model organisms, as they are applied to human blood disorders. A primary aim is to promote knowledge of therapies or drug discovery that has been developed pre-clinically to move to a clinical trial. Topics: Blood development: mechanisms and pathology Epigenetic regulation of blood development Erythropoiesis and red cell disorders Targeting blood cancers Clonal hematopoiesis Manipulating the stem cell niche

Global Globin 2020 (GG2020) Challenge Conference 2019.

28-30 October 2019

UNESCO Headquarters, Paris, France

Global migration and a high disease burden have put sickle cell disease and thalassaemia on the agenda in many countries worldwide. The GG2020 Challenge addresses the global health problems imposed by major haemoglobinopathies, with focus on advanced diagnostic technology and the systematic collection and sharing of variation and epidemiological data. The GG2020 conference is a great opportunity to forge new collaborations, share your knowledge, present your research and become part of the GG2020 network.
