EHA Scientific Working Group on Diagnosis: Morphology and Flow Cytometry

EHA and the EHA Scientific Working Group on Diagnosis: Morphology and Flow Cytometry are organizing this EHA-SWG Scientific Meeting on Integrated Diagnosis Strategies in Oncohematology for the Management of Cytopenias and Leukocytosis

After a successful first edition in 2015, the second edition of the EHA-SWG Scientific Meeting on Integrated Diagnosis Strategies in Oncohematology for the Management of Cytopenias and Leukocytosis returns to Barcelona on February 8-10, 2018. This meeting will cover all practical aspects of diagnosis of hematological disorders suspected when encountering leukocytosis or cytopenia, with a strong focus on morphology, pathology and flow cytometry.

Below you can find key information and the links to important further details regarding registration and accommodation and a wide array of sponsor opportunities available for pharmaceutical companies.

Program:

The scientific program will cover the following topics:
  • Pre analytical and analytical considerations
  • Towards integrated diagnoses: basics of morphology, flow cytometry, cytogenetics and molecular karyotype, molecular technologies
  • Normal and pathological hematopoiesis, from progenitors to granulocytes and monocytes
  • Morphology of granulo-monocytopoiesis: normal, MDS, AML and MPN
  • Immunophenotypic exploration of erythropoiesis and thrombopoiesis
  • Lymphopoiesis, leukemia and lymphoproliferative disorders
  • Update on WHO 2016
  • New drugs/therapeutic approaches and personalized medicine
  • Patient’s follow up: MRD and detection of the emergence of resistances
get the proper orientation from morphological examination of blood or bone marrow smears.
know how to orient complementary flow cytometry panels.
understand how to apply classifications (mostly WHO 2016).
appreciate how cytogenetics and molecular biology may help reaching an integrated diagnosis.
better interact with clinicians in discussing difficult cases.
