San Francisco – “Manic Monday” is what I call Monday at the annual meeting of the American Society of Hematology. It’s when the majority of oral presentations take place in multiple parallel sessions that require you to run between meeting rooms if you want to follow a particular drug across different blood cancers.
San Francisco – it’s day 2 of the annual meeting of the American Society of Hematology. Yesterday, data was presented to the media on “Directing the Immune System to Attack Hard-to-Treat Blood Cancers.”
San Francisco – the 2014 annual meeting of the American Society of Hematology kicks off today. Yesterday was “Super Friday” – a day when the non-profit and industry sponsored satellite symposia and other ancillary meetings, take center stage.
The 2014 American Society of Hematology (ASH) annual meeting starts later this week in San Francisco. #ASH14 is a “must attend” given the innovation that has taken place in recent years for new treatments of blood related cancers.

We spend a lot of time in the poster halls at scientific and medical meetings such as European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) Congress in Madrid because that’s where the action is in terms of finding nuggets of promising preclinical and early clinical data. You can also spot new trends emerging earlier this way.
One of the sessions that stood out for me at the recent European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) Congress in Madrid was a Special Symposium on “Advances in Precision Medicine of Metastatic Colorectal Cancer.”
