The premier meeting in the Asia Pacific region to discuss recent advances in the field of hematopietic stem cell transplants and related cellular therapies in the world and to share particularly the work done in the Asia Pacific region to improve patient outcomes. There will also be a strong educational component with a dedicated CME program on the first day as well as multidsciplinary involvement with nursing and technology tracks in the scientific program. Very importantly, opportunities for networking among colleagues from the region will also be a major goal of the meeting.
The Asia Pacific Blood and Marrow Transplant (APBMT) Group will be holding its 25th annual meeting this year in Kochi, India from the 9th to 11th October, 2020. It gives us great pleasure in inviting you to this meeting which is being hosted by the Indian Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (ISBMT) along with the APBMT.
The scientific program will bring you the latest and the best of what is happening in haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) in the world with a special focus on our region. We will also have a strong educational component for those beginning in this field. There will be a dedicated stream for subjects related to nursing in HSCT as well various laboratory aspects of stem cell collection, characterization and manipulation.
We would particularly like to support the attendance of trainees and junior faculty (within first 3 years of completion of training). The 50 highest rated first author abstracts accepted for presentation from those in this category will be provided travel grants.
Kochi is one of the top tourist destinations in India and October is a very nice time for visits to this part of the country. We can help arrange tours before or after the meeting in that area to some of the best sandy beaches, hills and tropical forests, temples and architecture or wildlife sanctuaries offering a range of options.
We look forward to your company in enchanting Kerala in India for this wonderful occasion!
