ASHI Annual Meeting – American Society for Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics
September 11, 2017 - September 15, 2017$695
Come experience five days of educational programming designed to provide you with comprehensive state-of-the-art updates and glimpses into the future of the fields of genomics, immunogenetics, immunology, histocompatibility and transplantation.
After attending this meeting, participants will be able to identify important roles for histocompatibility and immune system genes that reach beyond transplantation, new ways to expand opportunities for transplantation and current best practices for selecting donors for both hematopoietic stem cell and organ transplantation. They will also be able to more critically assess various aspects of laboratory testing, from detection of clinically relevant antibodies to the very latest methods for HLA typing and for analyzing test results.
Join Us as We Celebrate the Past and Change the Future of Immunogenetics!
The ASHI Annual Meeting will provide participants with comprehensive state-of-the-art updates and glimpses into the future on a variety of topics related to the fields of genomics, immunogenetics, immunology, histocompatibility and transplantation. Plenary and symposium sessions will then update participants on the ever-increasing knowledge about the role of HLA molecules as risk or protection factors for HIV, influenza, drug and pollen allergies, malaria and narcolepsy; on new ways of using typing for HLA and immune system genes for matching and for understanding human population history; and on exciting new approaches to getting more people transplanted.
The exhibits complement the clinical and scientific content of the meeting by exposing attendees to the latest developments in products and services used by immunologists, geneticists, molecular biologists, transplant physicians, surgeons, pathologists and technologists involved in histocompatibility and immunogenetics.
