19th Annual International Ultmann Chicago Lymphoma Symposium

Chicago, IL US
April 29, 2022 to April 30, 2022
The International Ultmann Chicago Lymphoma Symposium (IUCLS) is an annual conference dedicated solely to the science and clinical care of lymphoma. It has been organized to honor the achievements of Dr. John Ultmann, a pioneer in the treatment of lymphoma, who devoted his life to the understanding of this disease. He was particularly known for his work on the staging of Hodgkin lymphoma and the utility of staging as a guide for treatment.
We are fortunate to have a multitude of the world’s experts in lymphoma speak each year at the conference. The audience is comprised of regional practicing oncologists, advanced nurse practitioners and physician assistants, residents, fellows, and the Chicago academic community that includes five academic centers.
This is a certified continuing medical education (CME) activity that focuses on the biologic, diagnostic, and therapeutic aspects of Hodgkin lymphoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. This year’s meeting will be a 2-day live meeting to discuss recent updates in the care of patients with solid and hematologic malignancies.  A virtual live stream option will also be available for participants unable to travel.
