AA&MDSIF is committed to providing patients and their families with answers, support and hope. While each of our programs and services touches on all three, our research grants inspire the most hope.

AA&MDSIF is an international collaboration of medical researchers who are working together to find effective treatments and cures for bone marrow diseases. Learn about our services for healthcare professionals in this section.

AA&MDSIF Bone Marrow Failure Disease Scientific Symposia

Every two years, AA&MDSIF convenes experts from around the world who are treating bone marrow failure diseases or studying the immunology and cell biology of these diseases. The Fourth AA&MDSIF Bone Marrow Failure Disease International Scientific Symposium will be held on March 27 & 28, 2014 in Rockville, Maryland. This symposium will bring together physicians and labratory researchers to discuss current areas of controversy, share recent research results, and purpose recommendations to advance the field.

2012 Bone Marrow Failure Disease Scientific Symposium featured an internationally respected group of panelists who joined with young investigators to learn about the key areas of research, oppurtunities for collabortation, and the most promising directions for the future.
