iCMLf Virtual Education Program - view new lectures on 'frontline CML' and 'TKI resistance / failure'
October 2017 - There are four new presentations on the iCMLf Virtual Education Program on various aspects of CML management. All are recordings of leading expert presentations during a key-opinion leaders' meeting in Adelaide (Australia).
The first two sessions now online are about frontline CML and TKI resistance / failure. Watch out for additional modules to come over the next couple of weeks featuring topics like; future directions for CML, CML related topics and the CML frontier.
We are very sad to hear the news of the death of our friend and colleague Tessa Holyoake.
'Along with her many other achievements Tessa was an integral part of the iCMLf Advisory committee. She was also Co-Chair of our annual iCMLf/ESH John Goldman Meeting. She was always quick with advice and ideas. Even as her health was failing she continued to make critical contributions to the upcoming meeting. Tessa hosted iCMLf clinical preceptors since 2015. It is testament to her inspirational leadership and generosity that so many preceptors that visited Tessa in Glasgow became long term collaborators.
She will be sorely missed both personally and professionally'.
(Tim Hughes, Chairman of the iCMLf)
