Paediatric Diseases Working Party Educational Meeting on Haemoglobinopathies 2022

Presenters / Organizers :

To our great regret, we have been obliged to postpone Hemoglobinopathy 2022, the EBMT Paediatric Diseases Working Party meeting in Regensburg to the autumn. The circumstances of the war in Ukraine have affected substantially all our educational and scientific activities. Hence, we have decided to reschedule the meeting to the 10th-12th November 2022, whilst maintaining Regensburg as the venue. 

We are very sorry and apologise on behalf of the organising committee, the Working Party and EBMT for the inconvenience caused by this decision. We carefully considered all options before taking this decision but this force majeure situation has left us with no other option. 

We really look forward to and hope to welcome you all in November here in Regensburg so that we can all delve into the exciting scientific topics surrounding these fascinating diseases and enjoy the superb company of such an illustrious community!

All participants who were registered for the first dates will be directly transferred to November. Please contact us in case you won't be able to participate and we will proceed with the full refund.

Please save the date: Hemoglobinopathy 2022, November 10th -12th, 2022, Regensburg, Germany.

The hemoglobin related genetic disorders, namely sickle cell disease (SCD) and thalassemia (TDT), are by far the most frequent monogenetic disorder worldwide affecting several million worldwide, mostly in low and middle income countries. 
During the last decades, the overall survival has improved significantly predominantly due to education and supportive measures. Nevertheless, despite optimal care the overall survival has not reached average standards. 

Curative options such as stem cell transplantation remained reserved for patients with well-matched siblings in developed countries. 
Only in the last decade significant advancement in molecular science, advancements in drug development, stem cell therapy and gene manipulation technologies started to allow an opportunity for almost all patients with these diseases to improve their quality of life or achieve even cure.

Due to this highly relevant content, the PDWP of the EBMT decided to continue the tradition of the ‘Regensburg Meetings’ and dedicate another scientific meeting exclusively to this area of research, which will gain increasingly importance in the upcoming years. 

During three days, all relevant aspects of SCD and TDT will be presented by international experts from all over the world in a live format with in-person attendance availability. Each session will offer the opportunity to interact directly with the expert to discuss the presentation and to ask questions from your clinical practice. Participation is limited to encourage lively interaction and discussion among all participants. 

Additionally, nurses sessionsposter sessions and meet-the-expert sessions will allow young investigators and related team members to get first-hand information on the most relevant aspects of these exciting yet complex diseases.
