Dear colleagues and friends,
It is a great pleasure and honor to welcome you to Finland.
On behalf of the Nordic Society of Hematology and Oncology (NOPHO) and the local organizers, we warmly invite you to the 29th Annual Meeting of the International BFM Study Group (May 19-20, 2018) and the 11th Biennial Childhood Leukemia and Lymphoma Symposium (May 21-22, 2018) which will be held in Helsinki.
It is a privilege for NOPHO and the local organizers to host these meetings first time in the Nordic countries. NOPHO has been an official member the I-BFM SG since 2007, and Nordic clinicians, researchers and patients have benefited from this fruitful international collaboration enormously.
The meetings will be attended by major current and future opinion leaders in the field of pediatric hematological malignancies. It will provide excellent opportunities for clinicians and researchers from all countries in Europe and other parts of the world to meet, present data and plan future research in a friendly stimulating atmosphere.
Helsinki is the most popular international congress city in the Nordic countries with excellent flight connections and facilities.
With its seaside location and rich cultural scene, Helsinki offers memorable experiences in addition to the congress itself.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Helsinki, to continue the valuable and enjoyable I-BFM tradition.
With warmest regards
On behalf of NOPHO and the local organizing committee
