Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that we will be gathering together on April 14th-15th for the sixth time to update on stem cell and cellular therapy.

We are grateful to ASBMT for their scientific support all through these years. The presidents and eminent speakers from ASBT have been fundamental in the success of the Symposium.

To repeat our goal in this initiative is to provide opportunity to have face to face communication between woldwide experts of stem cell transplantation. Published reviews and manuscripts do not cover real world practical clinical and non-clinical problems. Moreover, medicine is a profession where mentor-student is of outmost importance.

Turkey is located in an area where neighbouring countries are very heterogeneous in terms of stem cell transplantation and cellular therapies. Istanbul is a wonderful venue for all hematologists in the region.

We welcome all those who are willing to participate and contribute to the success of our patients treatments.

Prof. Dr. Meral BEKSAÇ
President on Behalf of the Board of the
Turkish Bone Marrow Transplantation Foundation
