NCCN to Host its 10th Annual Congress: Hematologic Malignancies in San Francisco, California

On 16 – 17 October 2015, the National Comprehensive Cancer Network® (NCCN®) will host its 10th Annual Congress™: Hematologic Malignancies at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis in San Francisco, California; 2015 marks the first year the Congress will be held on the west coast.

Treatment of hematologic malignancies is increasingly complex. Issues relating to pathology, transplantation, and various new therapies require oncologists and hematologists to stay abreast of breakthrough advances. In addition, targeted therapies and oral treatment bring the latest benefits to patients.

Co-chaired by Ranjana H. Advani, MD, Stanford Cancer Institute, and Andrew D. Zelenetz, MD, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, the 10th NCCN Annual Congress focuses on the new approaches that have been incorporated into patient management, including the use of drugs, biologics, and diagnostics.

The one-and-a-half day program will feature presentations and panels on therapies for more than 12 types of hematologic malignancies, as well as supportive care.

NCCN is offering an early bird registration through Friday, 11 September 2015; early registration and booking of accommodations is strongly encouraged.
