As always, it will be a dynamic meeting focused on professional development and networking in benign hematology for:

  • Basic Scientists
  • Translational Researchers
  • Clinicians/Physician-Scientists

Target Audience: Junior faculty and early-stage investigators (MDs, DOs, MD/PhDs, and PhDs) who have completed fellowship and/or postdoctoral training and are working to build sustainable academic research careers in hemostasis and thrombosis.  Third- or fourth-year medical fellows and/or postdocs may apply to attend if they can demonstrate an established commitment to building a research career in hemostasis or thrombosis upon completion of training.

What to Expect: This dynamic meeting was originally designed to provide in-person professional education and promote career development.  Attendees will exchange ideas, establish or renew professional relationships, attend challenging scientific sessions and breakouts, and discuss the latest research in hemostasis and thrombosis.  There will be a focus on networking and mentoring; participants will enjoy plenty of time to connect with peers and expert mentors dedicated to bridging the traditional "bench to bedside gap" to improve the lives of patients with disorders of hemostasis and thrombosis.
