The 40th ASHI Annual Meeting will provide participants with comprehensive state-of-the-art updates and glimpses into the future on a variety of topics related to the fields of genomics, immunogenetics, immunology, histocompatibility and transplantation. The keynote address will set the stage with a discussion of medical applications of the new supercomputers like “Watson” - a lot has happened since that computer first learned to play Jeopardy and beat the best-of-the-best champions. Plenary and symposium sessions will then update participants on the ever-increasing knowledge about the role of HLA molecules as risk or protection factors for HIV, influenza, drug and pollen allergies, malaria and narcolepsy; on new ways of using typing for HLA and immune system genes for matching and for understanding human population history; and on exciting new approaches to getting more people transplanted. A joint AABB-ASHI symposium will also enlighten participants about how ABO types affect transplantation.
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint sponsorship of Institute for the Advancement of Human Behavior and The American Society for Histocompatibility & Immunogenetics. The Institute for the Advancement of Human Behavior is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
