50th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Hematology Will Feature Breakthrough Research in Blood Diseases
Date:12/3/2008

r areas of the field: thrombosis, blood coagulation and fibrinolysis, and platelet biology. In September, the Surgeon General's Call to Action to Prevent and Reduce Deep-Vein Thrombosis and Pulmonary Embolism encouraged public awareness of this blood condition that affects nearly 1 million Americans each year. The symposium will take place on Tuesday, December 9, from 7:30 - 9:00 a.m. PST.

This year's Practice Forum, "The Patient, the Hematologist, and the Unexpected," will focus on two areas of unexpected results encountered commonly enough to raise the interest of the hematology community. Additionally, this session will look at the public policy environment that will shape the practice of hematology and the Society as it enters its 51st year. This event will take place Saturday, December 6, from 6:00 - 7:30 p.m.

Another highlight of the meeting is the Presidential Symposium, which will focus on hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs). These cells are known for their role in the cure of a variety of diseases as well as for providing an understanding of stem cell development in all mammalian biology. During the symposium on Tuesday, December 9, from 9:45 - 11:45 a.m., three eminent investigators who have made significant contributions to our understanding of HSC biology will discuss the properties of these cells and their role in the human body.

Neal S. Young, MD, of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, National Institutes of Health, will discuss the pathophysiology of bone marrow failure and how clinical observations of patients with this disease have provided insights into the biology of autoimmunity, viral pathogenesis, and cancer at this year's E. Donnall Thomas Lecture on Monday, December 8, from 9:30 - 10:30 a.m.Bob Lowenberg, MD, Ph.D., of the Erasmus University Medical Center in the Netherlands, will give the Ham-Wasserman Lecture on Saturday, December 6, from 12:30 - 1:30 p.m. Dr.
