Clinic meets Biology

West German Lymphoma Symposium

24th and 25th May 2024 | Essen

Welcome

Dear Colleagues and Guests

The field of preclinical and clinical lymphoma research has seen a dramatic acceleration of progress during the last years, ranging from a molecular characterization of the disease to the development of novel mouse models, as well as preclinical drug development, ultimately culminating in massive advances in our current treatment algorithms, now involving CAR-T cells, various novel (bispecific) antibodies and new small molecule compounds.

In parallel to these scientific developments, within the state of Northrhine-Westphalia, the large comprehensive cancer centers CIO-ABCD (Aachen, Bonn, Cologne, D├╝sseldorf) and WTZ-EM (Essen, M├╝nster) have strategically strengthened their collaboration, particularly through the establishment of the National Cancer Center West NCT-West (Essen, Cologne), and have further consolidated and expanded their clinical and translational lymphoma programs.

Given these developments, we are excited to launch the bi-annual West German Lymphoma Symposium, to facilitate the scientific exchange within the region, excite young researchers for lymphoma research, and, most importantly, to further expand our international visibility and outreach.

The organizing team of the West German Lymphoma Symposium is happy to invite you to be part of our inaugural meeting. The meeting will take place on 24th and 25th of May 2024 in Essen, Germany at the heart of the Ruhrgebiet.

We would be absolutely thrilled if you could join us for this event. You are cordially invited to submit an Abstract. There will be short talks selected from the best abstracts, as well as poster awards.

With all our best wishes and warm regards
