2016 ASH Meeting on Lymphoma Biology

The ASH Meeting on Lymphoma Biology will be held June 18-21, 2016, at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The goal of the meeting is to further the understanding of lymphoma pathogenesis and accelerate new therapies by providing a forum for scientific exchange and by developing a roadmap for lymphoma research. The meeting's objectives include:

  • Establish a forum for the exchange of the state-of-science in basic and translational lymphoma research
  • Encourage networking among lymphoma researchers to enable more collaboration and synergy in the field
  • Foster collaboration and sharing of data and reagents among lymphoma researchers
  • Support relationships between academia and industry focused on chemical biology, immunotherapy, and other therapeutic approaches in the area of lymphoma
  • Establish a roadmap for lymphoma research to inform funding agencies and the public

The target audience for this meeting includes laboratory-based scientists, translational investigators, pharmaceutical scientists, and others interested in lymphoma science. The three-day meeting will include didactic sessions, abstract presentations, and interactive workshops/panel discussions.
