2018 BMT Tandem Meetings

Salt Lake City, UT US

Welcome to the 2018 BMT Tandem Meetings!

The BMT Tandem Meetings are the combined annual meetings of the Center for International Blood & Marrow Transplant Research (CIBMTR) and the American Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (ASBMT). Investigators, clinicians, laboratory technicians, clinical research professionals, nurses, pharmacists, administrators, and allied health professional attendees benefit from the full scientific program that addresses the most timely issues in hematopoietic cell transplantation.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we look forward to seeing you at the 2018 BMT Tandem Meetings in Salt Lake City, Utah. 

Our five days of plenary sessions, concurrent scientific and oral abstract sessions, Meet-the-Professor lunches and symposia will present recent progress in basic science, translational research and clinical studies in all areas of blood and marrow transplantation and cellular therapy. This year we expect more than 3,200 attendees. 

In keeping with a growing tradition, parallel conferences of specialized sessions will be attended by more than 1,400 transplant nurses, clinical research professionals, BMT pharmacists, BMT center administrators, and advanced practice professionals. We continue to host a Pediatric BMT Program on Thursday that highlights the specific issues of cellular therapy in children and adolescents.
