40th Annual Immunohematology Symposium Set for Sept. 23
The Clinical Center’s department of transfusion medicine and the American Red Cross will host the 40th annual Immunohematology and Blood Transfusion Symposium on Thursday, Sept. 23.
This year’s symposium focuses on several current topics including various component therapies for patients with Covid, sickle cell disease or hyperleukocytosis as well as patients requiring massive amounts of blood products in a very short time period.
The annual Dr. Richard J. Davey Lectureship will be awarded to a longstanding transfusion medicine program fellowship director, Dr. Kathleen Conry-Cantilena, who will present “Physician Fellow Training in BB/TM: A Saga of 26 Years as a Program Director.”
The symposium will end with a session featuring Dr. Harvey J. Alter, recipient of the 2020 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for his contributions to the discovery of the hepatitis C virus.
The symposium will be conducted via WebEx and is open to the public. Registration is required. Find the agenda and registration link at: https://www.cc.nih.gov/dtm/research/symposium.html.
