FOURTEENTH INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON MOLECULAR ASPECTS OF MYELOID STEM CELL
DEVELOPMENT AND LEUKEMIA

May 20-23, 2024
Cincinnati, Ohio

About

About

Since 1995, the Workshop on Molecular Aspects of Myeloid Stem Cell Development and Leukemia has offered a highly successful presentation series from approximately 40-50 renowned national and international researchers and clinicians.

The goal of these biennial workshops is to bring together investigators with expertise in complementary aspects of stem cell biology and myelopoiesis – from normal myelopoiesis to myeloid leukemia and myelodysplastic/myeloproliferative syndromes. Basic researchers and clinician investigators from both sides of the Atlantic, Australia, and Japan come together biennially to discuss their latest findings in a close and informal setting. The workshop brings together scientists with expertise in normal and abnormal hematopoiesis and clinicians who treat leukemia/MDS/MPD patients and also have active research programs in these diseases.

Participants achieve a better understanding of critical steps/factors that regulate hematopoiesis, their impact on leukemogenesis, and their potential relevance in clinical settings. Although there are other workshops and meetings dedicated to understanding the regulation of hematopoiesis or clinical advances in leukemia, this workshop uniquely brings together both clinicians and scientists in a relaxed forum.
