YoungEHA Best Abstract Award


One of the primary missions of the European Hematology Association is to support young hematology clinicians and researchers. Therefore at EHA2022 we launched the YoungEHA Best Abstract Awards. These are awarded to the highest ranking abstracts in the following four categories: Clinicians or medical students training for a PhD degree, PhD research students, postdoctoral fellows and clinical hematology trainees. Winners will present their abstracts at the Congress during a special session - it is our honor to welcome these YoungEHA trainees– they are the future of Hematology. The Award consists of € 500 and free registration to the next congress of EHA.

Please note that this award does not require an application procedure. The selection is made by the Scientific Program Committee and Advisory Board based on the highest ranking abstracts.
