Target audience

The meeting is intended for hematologists, (biomedical) scientists, general practitioners, and pediatricians.


The objective of this Meeting is to examine red cell and iron biology during the erythropoietic differentiation process. During the presentations and panels we will discuss the underlying machinery and mechanisms that allow for this enormous cell production and its alterations in causing red blood cell disorders. Furthermore we will outline the possibilities for diagnosis and treatment of both inherited and acquired conditions of anemias and cover different red cell disorders. The meeting will cover the following topics:

  • Thalassemias
  • Sickle Cell Disease
  • Diserythropoietic Anemias
  • Red Cell Enzyme Defects
  • Atypical Microcytic Anemias
  • Hereditary Hemochromatosis 
  • Iron Metabolism
  • Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria
  • Iron Deficiency/Iron Deficiency Anemia
  • Aplastic Anemia
