TRTH Scientific Symposium:
A Decade of Training the Future Leaders in Translational Research

Sunday, December 8, 2019, 4:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
Orange County Convention Center, W314, Level 3

A TRTH Scientific Symposium will be held at the ASH Annual Meeting to celebrate the Translational Research Training in Hematology 10-year anniversary. The Symposium will give TRTH alumni the opportunity to come together, network, and hear about career successes since the TRTH program. The symposium will be open to any ASH attendee interested in translational research and will feature four TRTH-alumni scientific-research presentations.

Four participants whose projects exemplify outstanding translational research have been chosen to present. Each speaker will have 15 minutes to discuss a recent successful research project and scientific accomplishments of the project. The speakers will also comment on how the TRTH curriculum and mentorship component impacted their work and careers in translational research and are encouraged to share notable professional accomplishments and promotions they have received since participating in TRTH. After the presentations, 30 minutes will be allocated for questions, discussion, and networking.
