Bone Marrow Failure Disease Scientific Symposium 2022

Register HERE to View on Demand

Listen to Neal Young, MD, and Richard Stone, MD, describe the value of attending the Eighth International Bone Marrow Failure Scientific Symposium on May 19-20, 2022.

This biennial Scientific Symposium is the only international forum focused solely on bone marrow failure diseases.  Join the world’s leading researchers on aplastic anemia, MDS, and PNH to discuss current areas of consensus and controversy, share recent research results, and identify the highest-priority directions for basic and clinical research to advance the field. 

The specific aims of this Symposium are to: 
• Foster collaborations among basic, clinical, and translational scientists and between scientists studying different diseases to help researchers better understand the diseases, form networks to advance their own research, and identify new approaches to transform findings into treatments
• Increase participants’ understanding of the molecular events that drive these diseases and the responses to treatment required to define at-risk populations and improve current therapies
• Develop recommendations for advancing basic, clinical, and translational research in bone marrow failure diseases
• Provide important opportunities to train and encourage young investigators to pursue a career in bone marrow failure disease research

Symposium Co-Chairs:  Richard Stone, MD, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Neal Young, MD, NHLBI

Symposium sessions include:

Thursday, May 19
• Genetics and Genomics of Bone Marrow Failure
• Somatic Mutations in Benign Diseases:  AA, PNH, VEXAS Syndrome
• Advances in Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria
• Transplantation for Bone Marrow Failure
• Non-transplant Therapies for Marrow Failure

Friday, May 20
• MDS and Secondary AML Pathophysiology
• MDS Tools for Prognosis:  Regaining Consensus
• Treatments for MDS and Secondary AML
