Message from the President: Annual Meeting Update

To the ISEH Community:

Dear friends and colleagues,

Around the world, we are experiencing unprecedented times. The worldwide coronavirus pandemic has resulted in subsequent safety concerns, travel restrictions, and a call for social distancing.  In an effort to protect the health, safety, and well-being of our attendees, speakers, sponsors, and staff, the ISEH Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to postpone our in-person ISEH Annual Meeting in New York City, USA, to next year in August 2021.

Many of us look forward to this event every year – we get to preview the latest and best research happening around the world and gather with a close community of researchers. The Annual Meeting continues to be a cornerstone of the ISEH community, and as such, we are excited to announce that ISEH 2020 will transform into a Virtual Scientific Meeting planned for the same initial week of August 17th, 2020.

As we are in the early phase of putting together this online event, there are still many questions that remain regarding format, content, duration and timing. We are committed to delivering an event of the caliber you expect, which embodies the spirit of ISEH meetings and will reach its international community. Over the coming days and weeks, we will be working closely with our Board of Directors, Scientific Program Committee, speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, and more. Please stay tuned for additional communications from ISEH to learn more about this virtual event. In the meantime, we ask you to continue to support ISEH in the following ways:
  • Submit an abstract for short talk selection and virtual poster session. The Call for Abstracts deadline is now extended until 15 June 2020.
  •  Join or renew your ISEH membership for year-round access to ISEH webinars, Simply Blood posts, Experimental Hematology and more. This is the best way to get involved.
  • Participate in an ISEH Virtual Happy Hour event to stay connected with ISEH and your colleagues. The next ISEH Virtual Happy Hour will take place on Friday, May 8 at  4:00 pm JST (Tokyo)/5:00 pm AEST (Sydney)/9:00 am CEST (Paris) (view in your time zone). Register here.
We have assembled a series of FAQs to address your questions, which is available on the ISEH website. Please reach out to info@iseh.org if you need more information.

On behalf of the entire ISEH Board of Directors, the Scientific Program Committee, and the staff of ISEH, we thank you and appreciate your continued support of ISEH.

Looking forward to connect with all of you during our virtual 2020 ISEH Annual Meeting.

Please stay safe, healthy and engaged with ISEH.

Emmanuelle Passegué
ISEH President
