HTRS will continue to be a comprehensive scientific meeting dedicated to continuing medical education and the advancement of clinical, translational, and basic science researched related to non-malignant blood disorders in both pediatric and adult medicine. Our target audience is:
- Clinicans and physician-scientists in pedatric and adult medicine, including related fields such as cardiology, pulmonology, and obstetrics/gynecology
- Medical students, trainees, and junior faculty
- Basic and translational scientists
- Nurses and nurse practitioners
- Physican assistants
- Any allied health professionals interested in hemostasis and/or thrombosis
- Industry colleagues
HTRS is closely monitoring the impact of COVID-19 on our plans for March 2021. We hope to meet in-person at the beautiful Loews Coronado Bay Resort. Yet even as we open registration for this live event, we are prepared to pivot to a hybrid meeting (some live content, some virtual) or even a completely virtual event if necessary for the health and well-being of our attendees.
Regardless of format, we look forward to exploring hot topics in hemostasis and thrombosis, including COVID-19 and its impact on our field. This Symposium will also feature new opportunities for early-stage physician-scientists and researchers, including additional oral abstract and poster sessions, interactive breakouts, and mentoring. Dynamic, lively scientific exchange in this collegial atmosphere can and will continue as we adapt to this “new normal.”
Highlights and Important Dates:
- REGISTRATION and ABSTRACT SUBMISSION are now open! Should circumstances require a pivot to a hybrid or vitual meeting format, HTRS will announce revised registration fees and refund the balance for anyone already registered as appropriate.
- TRAVEL AWARDS*: An increase number of travel awards are available in 2021 for trainees/early-career investigators including underrepresented minorities, allied health professionals, undergraduates, and those from North or Central America -- all of whom are first authors of thei highest-scoring abstracts submitted to the meeting
- CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDITS are offered through the joint providership of the Postgraduate Institute for Medicine and HTRS, including AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ for physicians, ANCC Contact Hours for nurses, and ACPE Contact Hourse for pharmacists.
- SPONSORSHIP AND EXHIBITS - HTRS Corporate Colleagues and other industry supporters will offer exhibits, satellite symposia, and other special events to enhance the experience for full conference attendees.

National Institutes of Health Center for Scientific Review
The Center for Scientific Review (CSR) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) offers two programs that could be valuable for HTRS members:
EARLY CAREER REVIEWER PROGRAM:
Early career scientists who would like review experience can apply to participate in the NIH Early Career Reviewer (ECR) Program. The goals of the ECR Program are to help early career scientists become more competitive as grant applicants through first-hand experience with peer review and to enrich and diversify CSR's pool of trained reviewers.
For more info or to apply to the ECR Program, please CLICK HERE
SCIENTIFIC SOCIETY- REVIEWER RECOMMENDATIONS PORTAL:
HTRS members are invited to recommend scientists to serve as grant reviewers through the NIH Review Recommendation portal. Reviewers should be scientists who are generally willing to serve as reviewers and are seen as experts, with integrity, in their field. They should have an active research program, extramural funding, and not currently be a standing member of an NIH study section or advisory council. The NIH is encouraging HTRS to recommend productive scientists from diverse backgrounds and career stages – e.g. assistant, associate, and full professors.
If you would like HTRS to nominate you or a colleague as an NIH reviewer, please email [email protected] for more info.

Dr. Anthony Fauci praises HTRS Member Lisa Baumann Kreuziger for her work on national COVID-19 panel
Dr. Lisa Baumann Kreuziger, MD, MS, Medical Director at the Versiti Blood Center of Wisconsin, was praised in a personal letter of gratitude from White House advisor and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci.
A hematology expert, Dr. Baumann Kreuziger is serving on a national COVID-19 panel that recommends the best treatment options for people with the virus. The guidelines have been developed to inform clinicians how to care for patients with COVID-19, she says.
"You responded in an exceptional way and worked tirelessly to develop an outstanding initial set of guidelines in two weeks," wrote Dr. Fauci. "In the first week after their release on April 21, there were more than 1 million page views, highlighting the importance of your work. Thank you again for your contributions to this panel, for your outstanding work in caring for patients and for all the additional ways you are helping to respond to this pandemic during this most extraordinary time."
Says Dr. Baumann Kreuziger, "I was honored and humbled to be part of a group of experts to establish treatment recommendations. The guidelines have provided a review of evidence on which doctors can treat patients and develop research."
