CMWP Scientific & Educational Meeting

General Information

The Chronic Malignancies Working Party (CMWP) is happy to announce our first 2021 Scientific and Educational meeting which will be held online on Friday, January 29th, and Saturday, January 30th.

We are changing the format this year. For the first time, all are welcome to attend the Friday scientific meeting to get a better understanding of how to plan and complete retrospective registry studies. To this end, each of the subcommittee presentations will start with a Principal Investigator talking through a recent publication. We believe that this should help demystify the process and encourage more transplant fellows to become involved. Later in each session, the disease-specific leads will discuss ongoing and future registry studies.

This will be followed on Saturday, 30th January, by a comprehensive educational event which is open to all. The talks will range across the wide variety of haematological malignancies covered within the Chronic Malignancies Working Party including Plasma Cell Disorders, Myelofibrosis, Myelodysplastic Syndromes and Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia. We are fortunate to be joined by international speakers such as Professor Jesus San Miguel, Professor of Medicine-Haematology and Head of Clinical and Translational Medicine at the University of Navarra, who will deliver a talk entitled “Optimize treatment for transplant candidate Myeloma patients” and Dr Jordan Gauthier, Assistant Professor, Division of Medical Oncology, University of Washington School of Medicine, who will provide an update on the use of CAR T cells in the treatment of Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia.

We welcome all healthcare professionals to this meeting and would particularly like to invite colleagues from EBMT-affiliated centres who would be interested in joining the CMWP.
