Analyze and assess blood group genetic questions while networking with laboratory and clinical professionals
Compare and contrast challenging or controversial concepts in molecular immunohematology
Debate and discuss red cell genotyping while meeting and interacting with 14 leaders in the field
Description: The Workshop for Molecular Immunohematology returns for another year! First-timers are welcome to experience this popular session on red cell genotyping. Join again, if you had participated during the previous 7 years, and explore our new set of questions every year. The workshops have resulted in annual publications summarizing the comments and opinions of you, the immunohematology professional (check this link: http://go.usa.gov/x89sd). The time-proven interactive networking format stays, while its content remains fresh. The program provides questions for roundtables of 6 to 10 participants who can compare and contrast their ideas and opinions. The event will consist of small group discussion led by “chaperones”. The 12 chaperones move from one table to another to rotate through each of 6 questions and, at the conclusion, present short summaries, to be formally written up and published early next year. For the inexperienced immunohematologist, we offer an opportunity to become familiar with a new field and to forge professional friendships. For the seasoned professional, we present a platform to share experiences and swap ideas. Join us for a successful session and look for your collective opinions to appear in print.
