4th International cGvHD Symposium and TCWP Educational Meeting



We are very happy to announce the upcoming Joint Meeting of the 4th Chronic Graft-versus-Host Disease International Symposium and EBMT Transplant Complications Working Party (TCWP) Educational Course, that will take part in Zagreb, Croatia, on November 8th-10th, 2018.

The 4th cGVHD International Symposium will be held on Friday 9th of November and will provide a thorough overview of current and future perspectives in chronic GVHD, by addressing several topics: 1) General principles and current knowledge about cGVHD, 2) New issues regarding particular aspects of cGVHD, 3) Clinical trials design and drug development, 4) Implementation challenges, and 5) Presentation and discussion of case reports.

The annual educational meeting of the TCWP will be held on 10th of November and will provide an exciting course on different post-transplant complications including endothelial syndromes, acute GVHD and late effects as well as novel therapies and supportive care. All the subject-oriented lectures will be based on interesting real-life cases and presented in a straightforward and interactive manner. Participants are also welcome to the business meeting of TCWP, which will be held on the November 8th, 2018.

This event is dedicated to physicians who are engaged in management and advancing care of allo-HSCT patients. Lecturers are the leading experts from Europe and USA in the field of graft-versus-host disease and transplantation in hematology. It is expected that this meeting will create a critical mass of investigators and colleagues who will carry this field in the near future. Another goal is to provide a venue for networking and establishing contacts for our future collaborations.

We look forward to seeing you in Zagreb!
