Program Information

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.
