Science Researcher Update: Spotlight on Meetings, Conferences, and Events

Tenth Cooley's Anemia Symposium

Posted on Jul 30, 2015 1:09:00 AM

Conference - Rosemont, United States
Since the Ninth Cooley's Anemia Symposium was held in 2009, all areas of thalassemia research have sustained major advances. The 2015 Symposium will bring together basic scientists, clinical investigators, and clinicians, for interactions and education. Areas of focus will include the biology of globin gene regulation and fetal hemoglobin induction; the evolving areas of stem cell transplant, gene therapy strategies, and gene editing; the biology of iron regulation and possible therapeutic interventions in the hepcidin regulatory system; and clinical issues in thalassemia treatment and imaging. Leading investigators, together with physicians involved in thalassemia care from around the world, will be featured speakers. Interactive poster sessions will allow trainees involved in all of these research areas to present their work.
Since the inaugural meeting jointly presented by the Cooley's Anemia Foundation and the Academy in 1964, this series of symposia convened at 5–6 year intervals has been the preeminent forum for convening the thalassemia research community, the pharmaceutical industry, and funding agencies dedicated to fighting this blood disorder, and the 2015 meeting will carry on this proud tradition.
