Researchers have developed a two-pronged approach to blood cancer treatment: 1) attacking cancer cells directly and/or 2) driving them from the nurturing bone marrow environment into the peripheral blood streams, where they are more vulnerable (for example, to chemotherapy).
This World Sickle Cell Day, ASH is working on several projects to conquer sickle cell disease (SCD) worldwide, including an effort to develop clinical practice guidelines on the management of SCD. These guidelines will be created with input from physicians and patients to address the unique needs of this underserved patient population.
The American Society of Hematology today announced the names of 22 medical students selected to take part in the 2017 Minority Medical Student Award Program. This program encourages eligible underrepresented minority medical students to pursue careers in hematology by supporting them as they implement their own hematology-related research project in the lab of a research mentor.
Urge your members of Congress to support continued medical research funding.
