(WASHINGTON – March 30, 2017) The American Society of Hematology (ASH) has announced the names of 23 hematologists participating in the 2017 ASH Clinical Research Training Institute in Latin America (CRTI-LA). This education and mentorship program will be held on April 5-6, 2017, in Uruguay, prior to the Society’s Highlights of ASH meeting in Latin America. This program is designed to prepare current hematology fellows and junior faculty members working in Latin America for careers in clinical research.

During the two-day program, ASH member experts from around the world will introduce CRTI-LA participants to the fundamentals of clinical trial design through educational sessions on topics such as biostatistics, developing clinical research questions, and writing an abstract and manuscript for publication. Small group breakout sessions will allow participants to network and discuss potential projects one-on-one with CRTI-LA faculty.

“ASH is pleased to support clinical research in hematology by providing an opportunity for fellows and faculty members to focus on everything they need to know to implement successful programs,” said ASH President Kenneth C. Anderson, MD, of the Lebow Institute for Myeloma Therapeutics and Jerome Lipper Myeloma Center at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. “Science and patient care know no borders, which is why it is important for ASH to offer programs like this not only in the United States, but internationally as well.”

The 2017 CRTI-LA participants are:
