ASH 2015 OrlandoOrlando – the 2015 annual meeting of the American Society of Hematology (Twitter #ASH15) kicks off in earnest today at the Orange County Convention Center.

There’s a comprehensive press program at #ASH15, which will no doubt drive a lot of the media coverage, but in addition to discussing some of the highlights, we’ll be going off the beaten path, and gathering noteworthy data for our post-meeting coverage.

There’s always a lot of great posters at the meeting, as well as useful educational and scientific sessions.

If you are interested in checkpoints in hematology, do check out the Scientific Session chaired by Dr Krishna Komanduri (@drkomanduri) “Checkpoint, Please?” It takes place from 9.30 am to 11 am today. It’s repeated again from 4 to 5pm on Sunday.

As the conference program notes, “this session will provide a broad overview of checkpoint inhibition and its therapeutic potential in the setting of solid tumors, alloreactivity and treatment of hematologic neoplasms.”

This is a rolling blog post, throughout the day we’ll be adding commentary as the opportunity presents.
