The Society's goal is to inform as many people as possible about this scientific opportunity  in the hopes of having a successful  first meeting that will bring hematology investigators  together to discuss the state of lymphoma science and develop a road map  for lymphoma research   In order to do that, ASH needs your help in reaching out to your colleagues  who may not be aware that the ASH Meeting on Lymphoma Biology is a unique opportunity  to share their basic and translational lymphoma  research through poster and oral abstract presentations and foster collaborations with fellow scientists. The meeting's program will cover the field's major topics, including:


    B-cell  receptor  signaling

    Epigenetics of lymphoma

    Germinal  center biology

    Immune evasion and approaches

    Lymphoma genetics

    Metabolism

    T-cell lymphoma


    Meeting's Objectives

    • Establish a forum for the exchange of the state-of-science  in basic and translational lymphoma research

    • Encourage networking among lymphoma researchers to enable more collaboration and synergy in the field

    • Foster collaboration and sharing of data and reagents among lymphoma researchers

    • Support relationships between academia and industry focused on chemicalbiology, immunotherapy, and other therapeutic approaches in the area of lymphoma

    • Establish a roadmap for lymphoma research to inform funding agencies and the public
