The 57th ASH Annual Meeting & Exposition will officially start on Saturday, with a full day of education, scientific programming, and poster presentations and six hours of exhibit hall time. That afternoon also will feature the meeting’s first general session, a lecture titled “Game of Clones.” Also worth mentioning:

Collaboration space. For the first time ASH will offer Collaboration Rooms at the conference for attendees to meet and work together in a private setting. They are free to reserve for up to 45 minutes and can be used for a variety of purposes, including allowing mentors and mentees to discuss ongoing projects or for attendees to continue a conversation started between sessions.

Pick their brains. ASH’s “Meet-the-Scientist” sessions provide an opportunity for a small number of attendees to meet with a scientific expert in a setting that fosters interaction. Experts from around the world will facilitate informal discussions allowing participants to present their questions and gain new perspectives over lunch.

Only the best. On the last day of the conference, The Best of ASH session will review the key themes and biggest breakthroughs from the meeting’s more than 3,000 abstract presentations. This is a not-to-miss session for anyone planning to report back to colleagues about the highlights of the meeting.
