Fourth International Workshop on the Biology, Prevention, and Treatment of Relapse after Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation
The workshop will feature internationally-recognized speakers from a multidisciplinary, diverse group comprised of basic and translational scientists and clinical investigators. The Workshop will include formal didactic presentations and informal discussion panels. It will also offer investigators interested in the field the opportunity to present their work in dedicated oral and poster sessions.
At the conclusion of this course, the participants should be able to:
- Update the current state of the science relative to biology and clinical study of relapse related to both autologous and allogeneic HSCT;
- Provide a forum for the presentation of ongoing laboratory and translational research specifically related to relapse following HSCT;
- Provide a forum to present ongoing clinical trials that are specific to the study of and treatment of relapse following HSCT;
- Provide an overview of the potential role of CAR T-cells and other cellular therapies in the prevention and treatment of relapse following HSCT.
