The American Society of Hematology (ASH) leads the world in promoting and supporting clinical and scientific hematology research through its many innovative award programs, meetings, publications, and advocacy efforts.
Blood is the official journal of the American Society of Hematology and the most cited peer-reviewed publication in the field. It is published weekly every Thursday, except for the last week in December, in addition to the ASH Annual Meeting Abstracts issue in November.

Under the direction of founding editor-in-chief Robert Negrin, MD, the inaugural issue made it's debut in December at the 58th ASH Annual Meeting and Exposition in San Diego.
