MPN&MPNr-EuroNet is pleased to invite you to its
Tenth Meeting

Biology of sporadic and hereditary
myeloproliferative diseases

Molecular Diagnosis of
MyeloProliferative Neoplasms (MPN)
and MPN-related congenital diseases (MPNr)

Zagreb, Croatia - April 9-10, 2015

Aims

The aims of MPN&MPNr-EuroNet's tenth meeting to be held in Zagreb, Croatia, on April 9-10, 2015 are:

  1. to share information on the newest developments in MPNs and related congenital diseases, hereditary erythrocytosis and hereditary thrombocytosis;
  2. to exchange and diffuse the latest information and guidelines on the molecular assays developed for diagnosis or research in laboratories working on MPNs and related diseases across Europe;
  3. to provide guidelines for the molecular diagnosis of MPN, hereditary erythrocytosis and hereditary thrombocytosis;
  4. to discuss and plan for the various tasks and objectives of the three MPN∓MPNr-EuroNet working groups (WG);
  5. to help and encourage young scientists to pursue a career dedicated to MPNs.

To do so, abstracts will be selected for short talks in the general and working group sessions. Posters will be presented during the whole length of the meeting.

Plenary sessions will cover the newest knowledge in MPNs. Each WG will convene under the direction of the WG chairs. New participants are encouraged to become actively involved in specific WG tasks.

Objectives

Participants to the tenth MPN&MPNr-EuroNet meeting will have the opportunity to hear from the best experts about the newest developments in the molecular diagnosis of MPNs and related congenital/hereditary diseases. They will have the opportunity to present their own work and original diagnostic assays, and exchange with colleagues and experts on the newest genes and techniques of interest in the field of MPNs, congenital erythrocytosis and hereditary thrombocytosis. By joining one or more of MPN&MPNr-EuroNet working groups, they will be able to contribute actively, productively and durably in innovation, optimization and standardization of the biological diagnosis of MPNs and related congenital diseases in Europe.

Abstract Submission

Participants are encouraged to submit an abstract in relation to the diagnosis of MPNs, new mutations in MPNs, the histopathology of MPNs, the pathogenesis of MPNs, inflammation in MPNs, congenital erythrocytosis, hereditary thrombocytosis, and the JAK/STAT and other signalling pathways of interest in MPNs. Early stage researchers and junior biologists and clinicians are especially encouraged to submit abstracts.
Abstracts should be composed as follows:

  • Title
  • Names of co-authors
  • Institutions and addresses
  • E-mail address of corresponding author
  • Text (body of text less than 2000 characters, including spaces).
All abstracts will be put together in an Abstract Book that will be distributed to participants during the meeting.
The deadline for submission of abstracts is February 28th, 2015.

In order to submit an abstract, participants should first be registered, then, being logged in, choose Abstract in the menu bar on Registration page.
