Don’t You … Forget About (C)ME

As you walk away from the 2020 Annual Meeting, don’t forget about continuing education credits. Here are some FAQs, and complete info can be found on the ASH website. Is CME/MOC available? Attendees do not need to attend the live sessions as they air in order to claim...

Classical Hits: A Hematology Review

I’m with Dr. Alice Ma on this one. Classical hematology, or the study of nonmalignant, but not so “benign,” hematologic conditions evokes an image of white bearded, Latin speaking, tweed blazer (with elbow patches) wearing physicians, gathering in dusty, musty...

Finding Common Ground

When patients present for surgery, they have well-defined expectations of those involved. The surgeon performs the surgery. When patients bleed, the hematologist tells them why (“someone just cut you open”). A distant scientist identifies a treatment for that why...

I Spy With My “Nano” Eye…

Producing red cells on a large scale for clinical use has been fraught with challenges, necessitating further elucidation of the processes. A further understanding of the ultrastructure of both the mature erythrocyte cytoskeleton and the various stages of...

The eX-factors of Hematopoiesis

In designing and controlling production systems, in a symphony, in manufacturing, or in any assembly process, internal and external controls are both prerequisite and vital. That is no different for the environmental milieus (fetal liver or bone marrow) managing the...

Life Finds a Way

In the beginning, there was chaos. Inorganic compounds swirled in and out of phase, light and dark, mixed in a haze of lifeless yet limitless potential; physics and chemistry unrepentantly contemplated the depths of their power with no regard for their as yet...

2020 Update on Precision Medicine Initiatives

Precision medicine encompasses all approaches that use patient- and disease-specific information to prevent, diagnose, and treat a disease, and applying its principles to hematologic diseases is a priority for ASH. The use of genome sequencing and genomic profiling is...

In the Future, All Blood Is Red

This year, at medical schools across the country, students will virtually attend a series of lectures on the ethics of medicine, during which they’ll learn words like “paternalism” and “therapeutic alliance,” “egalitarianism” and “stewardship,” and “beneficence” and...

A New Angle for #ASH20

As an introvert, I am relieved that the virtual platform means avoiding the masses and dodgy coffee. As a human, I mourn the loss of tradition and sense of normalcy. Like most other aspects of 2020, the 62nd ASH Annual Meeting will operate with an “improvise, adapt,...

A Cavalcade of COVID, and Clots, and Coagulopathy

Unless you’ve been living on another planet (and in that case, I need more details), your life has likely been turned upside down by the COVID-19 pandemic. Since March, our world has changed in ways that most of us could have never imagined. From working on the...
