The EHA-SWG Scientific Meeting was organized by the EHA Scientific Working Group on Multiple Myeloma (MM) and EHA.
The goal of this meeting was to provide the state-of-the-art on genome wide studies, molecular diagnostics, GWAS analyses, imaging, MRD monitoring, myeloma stem cells, targeted treatment strategies, clinical trial portfolio, biobanking and guidelines. The meeting was designed to create a high quality scientific program and to share in-depth scientific knowledge with hematologists. In particular, this meeting offered an innovative format that allowed room for discussions. Voting boxes were used for the self-assessment of participants.
The meeting was targeted towards specialists in hematology, clinicians involved in MM, basic researchers, biologists, students and everybody interested in this specific section of hematology.
Participants of this meeting are eligible to receive one Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit point for every hour of accredited activity from the EHA-CME system.
