Event Highlight: Upcoming Lymphoma Expert Forum

Advancing Lymphoma Treatment Together

 Oncology lymphoma expert forum 2017

Oncology Meeting Innovations (OMI) is hosting a Non-Hodgkin and Hodgkin Lymphoma Expert Forum on July 14th and 15th at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, Texas. This program provides a forum for debate about the rapidly expanding information on molecular diagnostics, genomic analysis, new molecular targets, and the evolution of care over the next five years of non-Hodgkin and Hodgkin lymphoma.

There will be a focus on the integration of novel therapies, such as checkpoint inhibitors, CAR-T therapy, and ADCs, into the current treatment paradigm. The meeting will also explore the management of toxicities, assessment of response and progression, and the influence of microenvironment on resistance and survival. The Expert Forum assembles a distinguished group of preclinical and translational experts for an open discussion on new data that will influence our knowledge of lymphoma over the coming years.

The Chairs for the Lymphoma Expert Forum are Brad S. Kahl, MD, John Pagel, MD, PhD, and Andrew D. Zelenetz, MD, PhD.
