EHA Research Conference 2022

Dates: October 17-20, 2022
Location: Palermo (Sicily), Italy
Chairs: Emmanuelle Passegué, Cristina Lo Celso, Mick Milsom, Meri Alberich Jorda, Antonella Fidanza, Jürg Schwaller, Thomas Mercher and Brian Huntly

EHA is proud to announce the inaugural edition of the EHA Research Conference, titled "Extrinsic signals and perturbations in normal and malignant hematopoiesis". This flagship meeting is positioned to become the premier scientific meeting of EHA. Its small, intimate and research topic-focused nature will greatly complement the much larger, wide-ranging and more clinically/translationally oriented EHA Annual Congress that takes place in June.

Abstract submission is now open! Click here to submit your abstract. 

The meeting will be organized over 3,5 days, with significant time set aside for discussion, breakouts, networking and social activities. The aim of the 2022 meeting is to present, synthesize and discuss the state-of-the art of extrinsic signaling to, and perturbation of normal and malignant hematopoietic stem cells.

Target audience

Basic/translational researchers in hematology with an interest in hematopoietic stem cells, hematopoiesis, microenvironment and inflammation in benign and malignant settings.

Program

This meeting will cover the following topics:

  • Aging hematopoietic stem cells (HSC): epigenomic regulation, inflammation, stem cell dynamics
  • The role of inflammation in HSC regulation
  • Epigenetic mechanisms regulating normal and malignant HSC
  • The bone marrow microenvironment under inflammatory stress
  • Metabolic regulation of normal and malignant HSC
  • Extracellular factors regulating HSC in normal and malignant conditions

  • Understand the role of inflammation in HSC regulation
  • Follow up on the epigenetic mechanisms regulating HSC and hematopoiesis
  • Expand their knowledge on aging mechanisms and their influence on blood cells differentiation
