Scientific Symposium 2016
March 17-18, 2016         
Hilton Rockville Hotel, Rockville, Maryland

An Intensive Two-Day Conference Convening International Experts at the Forefront of Research and Treatment of Bone Marrow Failure Disease

You are cordially invited to attend the International Bone Marrow Failure Disease Scientific Symposium 2016.  This symposium will bring together physicians treating these diseases and laboratory researchers studying the immunology and cell biology of bone marrow failure disease to: 
  • Discuss current areas of controversy
  • Share recent research results  
  • Propose specific recommendations for the highest priority directions for basic and clinical research needed to advance the field of research
Once thought of as distinct, aplastic anemia, myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), and paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) are now believed to be linked by similar pathophysiologic pathways. 
 
With exciting new developments in the treatment of these diseases and new insights into the molecular pathogenesis of the diseases, AA&MDSIF is coordinating this symposium to explore opportunities for collaborative research. 
 
The symposium program has been designed to address the most up-to-date issues in each topic area and to encourage participant interaction.  Each session includes presentations
by experts in the field followed by open discussion. 
 
Poster session and networking opportunities are included in the program.

Limited travel support is available for new investigators. For more information, contact Alice Houk at (301) 279-7202 x101.
