This year’s meeting in Vienna, Austria boasted more than 375 attendees from leading research labs and facilities around the world. The meeting started with a dynamic presentation by Dr. Leonard Zon, (pictured, left) Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Division of Hematology/Oncology as he received the prestigious Donald Metcalf Award.
Throughout the meeting, attendees took the opportunity to network each evening while viewing around 200 posters.
As a fitting end to the meeting, Dr. Hanna Mikkola, University of California – Los Angeles (pictured below, with ISEH president Elaine Dzierzak), was presented the McCulloch and Till Award for her advancement of the hematology field as a junior scientist. Mikkola said, "I am extremely honored and humbled to receive this award.”
