AAMDSIF sponsors live education events throughout the year. This includes satellite symposia at annual medical association meetings, as well as smaller live regional events where community-based health professionals can hear from leading experts. The International Bone Marrow Failure Disease Scientific Symposium is our biennial professional meeting held near Washington, DC.

Great Debates and Updates in Hematological Malignancies

March 6-7, 2020 | Los Angeles, CA
July 17-18, 2020 | New York, NY (Previously May 1-2)
August 28-29, 2020 | Chicago, IL (Previously April 3-4)

In this 2-day, debate-style series, nationally recognized thought leaders take opposing sides on clinical—and sometimes controversial—topics currently disrupting the practice of hematology and oncology. Through comprehensive review of the latest clinical advancements in hematologic malignancies, robust audience engagement, and ample discussion, participants will leave equipped with practical implications and applications to put into practice immediately.

Seventh International Bone Marrow Failure Scientific Symposium

**In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, AAMDSIF will be conducting this Biennial International Scientific Symposium virtually.

Collaborating to Transform Treatment and Improve Outcomes
July 15th, 16th & 17th | Virtual sessions, discussions and poster session

An Intensive Three-Day Virtual Conference Convening International Experts at the Forefront of Research and Treatment of Bone Marrow Failure DiseaseThis symposium will bring together physicians treating these diseases and laboratory researchers studying the immunology and cell biology of bone marrow failure disease to: 

  • Discuss current areas of controversy
  • Share recent research results  
  • Propose specific recommendations for the highest priority directions for basic and clinical research needed to advance the field of research

Once thought of as distinct, aplastic anemia, myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), and paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) are now believed to be linked by similar pathophysiologic pathways. 

With exciting new developments in the treatment of these diseases and new insights into the molecular pathogenesis of the diseases, AAMDSIF is coordinating this symposium to explore opportunities for collaborative research. 

The symposium program has been designed to address the most up-to-date issues in each topic area and to encourage participant interaction.  Each session includes presentations
by experts in the field followed by open discussion. 

Poster session and networking opportunities are included in the program.

Limited travel support is available for new investigators. For more information, contact Alice Houk at (301) 279-7202 x101.
