Description

The NHLBI State of the Science (SOS) Workshop will be held on the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland on May 15 and 16, 2018. The goal of this workshop is to solicit input from all constituencies within the U.S. hemophilia community, as well as international collaborators, into the development of a coordinated and collaborative national blueprint for future, basic, translational, and clinical research focused on factor VIII (FVIII) immunogenicity and FVIII inhibitor prevention and eradication.
