April 25, 2024 to April 27, 2024

11th Symposium on Hemostasis: Coagulation and Platelet Biology and the Intersection of Health and Disease The symposium planned for 2024 will continue to focus on the latest findings in the field of hemostasis and thrombosis. The meeting consists of several sessions focusing on new insights into the basic biochemistry of coagulation; platelet production, function, and storage; mechanisms underlying thrombosis with aging; the crosstalk of coagulation components with complement; mechanisms of cancer-associated thrombosis; immune interactions with platelets and the coagulation system during sepsis; novel animal models to study xenotransplantation; emerging therapeutics for bleeding and thrombotic disorders. Moreover, important new research on the state of gene therapy for treatment of sickle cell disease will also be presented. In addition, we will feature a session to highlight the research of trainees attending the symposium.

Target Audience

  • Allied Health Professionals
  • Fellows
  • Medical Students
  • Physicians
  • Physician Assistants
  • Residents

Learning Objectives

Evaluate novel substrates for coagulation factors and their effects on procoagulant functions. 

Evaluate the effects of immune senescence on vascular thrombosis. Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a leading cause of cardiovascular death worldwide. 

Evaluate how understanding basic mechanisms of hemostasis can lead to novel theranostics for bleeding and thrombotic disorders. 

Discuss the evolving knowledge on the interactions of inflammation with platelets and coagulation factors.
