The 2016 annual meeting of The American Society of Hematology (ASH) is rapidly approaching and starts later this week on Friday in San Diego (Twitter #ASH16).

ASH15 Late Breaker Session“Super Friday” at ASH, as it’s commonly known, is a day typically associated with satellite symposia, where company’s and organisations sponsor or give unrestricted grants for continuing medical education (CME) around a specific topic or theme. These are professionally produced events that offer fair balance and a line up of experts.

There are also scientific workshops and unofficial meetings not part of ASH….so if you have plans to be in San Diego on Friday where should you be? 

I’m flying in late Thursday and have carefully reviewed all my options for Friday, of which there were many.

ks-beerdetail-2016-03-rtaOne now jumps out to me as a “must attend” and I’m afraid it’s not drinking a Red Trolley…. You’re welcome to join me or can maximise your mileage by going to another event and avoiding duplication of coverage.

Tomorrow @MaverickNY will be kicking off her coverage from Munich and the EORTC-NCI-AACR Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics Symposium (Twitter #ENA2016) before flying to San Diego on Friday.

If you’re hoping for coverage of World Lung from Vienna, I’m afraid that fell through the cracks thanks to it’s change of date from September to December and the clash with ASH who always hold their annual meeting around the same time.

After #ASH16 I’ll be doing the “on, on, on” to San Antonio for #SABCS16. It’s going to be a busy 2 weeks!

The abstracts (apart from the late-breakers) for the 2016 annual meeting of the American Society of Hematology (Twitter #ASH16) went live at 9am ET today. Link to 2016 ASH Abstracts.

ASH16 takes place in San Diego from December 3-6.

View of San Diego from ASH 2011In this initial post, I’m sharing my first impressions of what may be some hotly contested trials at ASH16 in San Diego, as well as a few intriguing abstracts with combination data that caught my attention.

With over 3,000 oral and poster presentations, all typically of a high quality, this by post by definition, is a highly subjective one.

After we’ve had more time to process the data, further ASH16 Previews will roll out over the next few weeks highlighting more key abstracts to watch out for by tumour type or treatment modality.

In-depth commentary and analysis will follow after we’ve heard or seen the data presented at the meeting.

I’ll be flying to ASH from the EORTC-NCI-AACR Molecular Targets meeting. Do say “hello” if you have plans to be in Munich or San Diego.
