2011 Annual Scientific Symposium of the Hemostasis & Thrombosis Research Society
Feinberg School of Medicine
420 E. Superior, Ste. 680
Chicago, Illinois
We are pleased to announce the program for the seventh Annual HTRS Scientifi c Symposium. The mission
of HTRS is to advance research, education, and mentorship to improve care for persons with disorders of
hemostasis and thrombosis. This year, we have endeavored to create a program that balances bleeding and
clotting issues, as well as pediatric and adult topics. We have invited a number of non-hematology speakers
to bring together some of the different specialties with whom hematologists co-manage patients, including
Neurology, Vascular Medicine, Anesthesia, and Ophthalmology. This was done with the goal to (a) benefi t
from the unique knowledge of these specialists, (b) promote discussion and a multidisciplinary approach
to coagulation disorders, and (c) strengthen links to other professional organizations. We are grateful to the
national and international speakers who have agreed to present at this meeting.
New this year is a module featuring fi ve brief case-based presentations of clinical dilemmas. Experts
will discuss their personal approach to situations where there is a lack of clinical trial data. Also new are
the “Nursing Pre-Conference Meeting� and various networking opportunities for non-physician health care
providers (nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, social workers, pharmacists). These features were
created to (a) provide this professional group a platform for networking and (b) to support and acknowledge
the important role of these health care providers in bleeding and clotting research and patient care.
We look forward to welcoming a diverse audience to this conference: residents and fellows interested
in coagulation; junior faculty members and well established coagulationists; physicians, nurses, and other
healthcare providers; hematologists, general internists, cardiologists, pulmonologists, and any type of
physician with signifi cant involvement in the care of patients with disorders of bleeding and thrombosis;
clinicians, researchers, health care policy makers. As one of the major missions of HTRS is to cultivate the
next generation of hemostasis and thrombosis health care providers, we particularly warmly invite our junior
colleagues to attend.
Finally, no matter whether you are a physician or non-physician health care provider, a hematologist,
generalist, or other specialist with an interest in bleeding and clotting, please consider becoming a member of
HTRS. We look forward to seeing you in Chicago and hope you enjoy the meeting.
