EHA-ASH Translational Research Training in Hematology

The call for EHA-ASH TRTH is now closed. The next call will open in 2021.

Update: EHA-ASH Translational Research Training in Hematology (TRTH) postponement

TRTH logoNEW PNGEHA and the American Society of Hematology (ASH) are dedicated to career development in early career researchers and have successfully substantiated this commitment during the last 10 years with the joint Translational Research in Hematology Training program (TRTH). Translational Research Training in Hematology (TRTH) provides researchers with a unique, year-long training and mentoring experience.

The TRTH program begins with an intensive week-long course held in the spring. Mornings are dedicated to didactic and interactive sessions which further participants' understanding of translational research methodology and career development. Afternoons are devoted to small group sessions in which participants meet with their TRTH mentors, peers, and faculty to refine their individual research proposals. Informal presentations by leaders in hematology take place in the evenings. These presentations are designed to illustrate the variety of pathways to a successful career in hematology research. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, both societies are changing the format of many of their programs. Although we are all experiencing virtual meetings and have become adept to interacting online, we do not believe TRTH lends itself to a virtual format.

The TRTH program distinguishes itself from other events by its unique and personal mentorship aspect. The personal contact, conversations during lunch, coffee breaks, sitting next to each other at the seminar, are not replaceable by virtual meetings.

The winners of the 2020 program will attend the program in 2021.

A new TRTH call for applications will open in 2021. We understand some of you may be concerned about the expiration of your eligibility for the program, due to your graduation dates. Please know that a new TRTH policy has been enacted based on EHA’s policy that life events should not hamper career development. If you want to check whether you were eligible to apply by 1 July 2020, see eligibility criteria here.
