ASH Meeting on Lymphoma Biology


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 meeting consists of didactic sessions, abstract presentations, interactive workshops, and panel discussions. One important aspect of the meeting is Continuing Conversations, which are informal, interactive discussions designed for meeting attendees to address issues relevant to the lymphoma community.
