The Foundation for Women & Girls with Blood Disorders' (FWGBD - www.fwgbd.org) biennial colloquium on uterine hemostasis is scheduled for March 9, 2021 from 9:00 AM ET - 12 PM ET.  It will convene leading faculty/researchers/clinicians to review our current understanding of the science and evidence-based practice related to the diagnosis and clinical management of abnormal uterine hemostasis. 

The colloquium is complimentary for all HTRS Symposium attendees, and CME credits will be provided.

For full meeting agenda, CLICK HERE.

To register through the HTRS registration portal, CLICK HERE.

The educational goals for this meeting are:

  • Review the state of the science with respect to normal uterine hemostasis
  • Review the range of complications related to abnormal uterine hemostasis
  • Describe and review the epidemiology and variability in phenotype regarding women with hemophilia
  • Examine the full range of options for achieving uterine hemostasis in women with acute abnormal uterine bleeding, postpartum hemorrhage, and bleeding and clotting disorders including thrombotic microangiopathies 
  • Describe and underscore for target healthcare providers, the intersection of obstetrics/gynecology and hematology in the optimal care of these women and develop mechanisms for facilitating collaboration of these specialties.

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 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


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."
