Visit ASH Academy to claim CME/MOC or request a certificate of attendance.

The ASH Meeting on Lymphoma Biology was established in 2014 to address an unmet need in the lymphoma community: to serve as the only U.S.-based forum specifically focused on basic and translational science relevant to lymphoma and chronic lymphocytic leukemia. The central goal of the meeting is to bring together experts from around the world to discuss the latest lymphoma fundamental science, address current challenges in the field, establish the highest priorities for investigation, and develop novel therapeutics.

This ACCME-accredited program consists of didactic sessions, abstract presentations, interactive workshops, and panel discussions. In addition, "Continuing Conversations" sessions offer a setting for informal, interactive discussions designed for meeting attendees to address issues relevant to the lymphoma community.

Through participation in this meeting, attendees are able to:

  • Discuss cutting-edge lymphoma research in a relaxed, informal setting.
  • Present and hear newest unpublished results.
  • Learn about current challenges in the field and the next steps to address those challenges.
  • Establish collaborations with leading experts in academia and industry.
  • Discuss how collaborative efforts can help accelerate the development of new therapeutic strategies.
  • Interact with attendees and build your professional network.
  • Earn CME and MOC credits.

Previous meetings have attracted more than 300 professional attendees from at least 20 countries outside of North America, including more than 65 trainees and junior researchers.
