Novel Therapies in Hematologic Malignancies

Program Description: For most patients with advanced hematologic malignancies treatment options remain limited. However, with the rapid development of the high throughput analytical methods and our advancing understanding of the molecular pathogenesis of blood cancers, new therapies become available. This symposium will provide an overview of newest therapeutic strategies for hematologic malignancies. It will bring together basic and clinical scientists to outline current treatment options and discuss potential future targets. Target Audience: Hematologists/Oncologists, Hematology/Oncology fellows, Hemato-pathologists, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Pharmacists, Internal Medicine Residents, Basic Research Scientists. Learning Objectives At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to: Recognize dysregulated signaling pathways in hematologic malignancies and indicate current and potential therapeutic targets. Identify immunologic barriers created by hematologic malignancies and cite methods by which they can be overcome. Distinguish disease and class specific treatments for hematologic malignancies.
