New Orleans to host world's experts in lymphoma this weekend


This weekend the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans will host many of the world's experts on blood disorders like lymphomas and leukemias as the American Society of Hematology (ASH), publishers of the esteemed journal Blood, holds its 51st Annual Meeting from December 5-8 2009.

Dubbing itself "the premier hematology meeting in the world", organizers are expecting over 20,000 attendees.

The annual meeting is typically a time to highlight emerging treatment modalities, diagnostic trends, clinical trial results and new ideas in the field of blood disorders, and this year is no different, although among myriad events they will be recognizing the 150th anniversary of Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species with an evolutionary biologist looking at leukemia from a Darwinian perspective.
