Professionals | Aplastic Anemia and MDS International Foundation


AAMDSIF sponsors live education events throughout the year. This includes satellite symposia at annual medical association meetings, as well as smaller live regional events where community-based health professionals can hear from leading experts. The International Bone Marrow Failure Disease Scientific Symposium is our biennial professional meeting held near Washington, DC. LEARN MORE


A Brave New World: The Clinical Management of Bone Marrow Failure and Myeloid Malignancy in a Time of Personalized Therapy

Friday, December 8, 2017 – 12:30-4:30 pm
Marriott Marquis Atlanta, Symposium Room A703 – A704
Atlanta, GA

Satellite Symposium organized by the Cleveland Clinic Taussig Cancer Institute Leukemia Program and the Aplastic Anemia and MDS International Foundation, preceding the 59th ASH Annual Meeting.

The complimentary symposium will provide an in-depth and up-to-date review of research related to the biology, prognosis, natural history, and therapeutic management of patients with aplastic anemia, paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH), myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), and acute myeloid leukemia (AML). The program will bring leaders in disease research and clinical practice together to explore solutions to improve the care of patients.

Regional Bone Marrow Failure Disease Symposia

Nashville, TN - October 13, 2017
Cosponsored with Vanderbilt Univeristy Medical Center

Vanderbilt University Medical Center and the Aplastic Anemia and MDS International Foundation are jointly presenting this symposium to provide the latest information on the diagnosis and management of bone marrow failure disease and myeloid malignancies according to current clinical practice guidelines and recent research findings. The expert faculty will provide unique insight into these rare conditions and provide systematic approaches to clinical practice.


International Scientific Symposium 2018
March 22 – 23, 2018

AAMDSIF will sponsor its sixth International Bone Marrow Failure Disease Scientific Symposium on March 22-23, 2018, in Rockville, Maryland. The Symposium will bring together physicians treating these diseases; laboratory researchers studying the genetics, genomics, and pathophysiology of bone marrow failure; and clinical investigators to discuss current areas of consensus and controversy, share recent research results, and identify the highest-priority directions for basic and clinical research to advance the field.

Regional Bone Marrow Failure Disease Symposia

Clinicians caring for both children and adults are frequently faced with patients with low blood counts and the challenge of initial management and work-up. This symposium will provide participants with the most up-to-date review of scientific and clinical research related to the biology and management of pediatric and adult bone marrow failure diseases, including anemia, myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN), and paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH). The presenters will focus on the latest advances in the diagnosis, genetic characteristics, pathology and treatment options for these diseases, including the importance of recognizing adult presentations of inherited marrow failure syndromes and recent discoveries in inherited bone marrow failure defects.
