FASEB Science Research Conference: Hematologic Malignancies

Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology

Bethesda, MD - This FASEB Science Research Conference has a long pedigree as one of the premier meetings for fundamental and translational research in the hematologic malignancies including acute and chronic leukemia, the myeloproliferative neoplasms, myelodysplastic syndromes, myeloma and lymphoma. The meeting attracts many of the leading researchers and thought leaders in the field. This is a single room meeting organized in ten disease- and biology-focused sessions with an emphasis and culture of presenting unpublished data. With ample opportunity for personal interactions, the meeting has an extremely vibrant intellectual atmosphere. For this meeting we will highlight topical areas including genomic discovery, epigenetics, systems biology, immunotherapy, stem cell research, cellular reprogramming and genome editing. The meeting is committed to providing a forum for emerging investigators, with opportunities for oral presentation, two poster sessions and career development forums.

FASEB has announced a total of 34 Science Research Conferences (SRC) in 2015. Registration opens January 20, 2015. For more information about an SRC, view preliminary programs, or find a listing of all our 2015 SRCs, please visit


Since 1982, FASEB SRC has offered a continuing series of inter-disciplinary exchanges that are recognized as a valuable complement to the highly successful society meetings. Divided into small groups, scientists from around the world meet intimately and without distractions to explore new approaches to those research areas undergoing rapid scientific changes.

In efforts to expand the SRC series, potential organizers are encouraged to contact SRC staff at Proposal guidelines can be found at

FASEB is composed of 27 societies with more than 120,000 members, making it the largest coalition of biomedical research associations in the United States. Our mission is to advance health and welfare by promoting progress and education in biological and biomedical sciences through service to our member societies and collaborative advocacy.
