IEWP Newsletter August 2018

by Arjan Lankester

Dear colleagues,

First of all, I hope you have all enjoyed the summer period and holidays.

Looking forward to the second half of 2018 I would like to inform you on several IEWP events.    

This year the annual EBMT-ESID IEWP meeting will be in Leiden, September 28-30. The first day of the program will be fully dedicated to the 50th anniversary of successful stem cell transplantation in SCID in Europe. A series of international experts will give an overview of developments in this field. The Saturday and Sunday program will consist of sessions dedicated to stem cell transplantation and gene therapy in various PID, metabolic diseases and hemoglobinopathies. Moreover, updates on ongoing IEWP studies and proposals will be presented.  The program will be available on the website.

Of course we all look forward to a great annual meeting in Lisbon. During this meeting the IEWP session on Friday morning will be dedicated to developments in management of CGD including regular treatment, stem cell transplantation and gene therapy followed by a panel discussion.   

I hope to meet you during the various events and look forward to work with you on our ongoing and new projects.
Please contact me in case you have any questions or suggestions for new study proposals.

Best wishes,

Arjan Lankester
Chair IEWP
