-- Virtual Education Program: 2016 Edition

We are pleased to make available a new series of presentations on modern diagnostics in CML that were first presented at the 'Clinical Symposium on Modern Diagnostics' during the 18th John Goldman Conference on CML in Houston in 2016. Modules currently featured include; The role of cytogenetic monitoring in CML management, Molecular monitoring in CML, Mutation screening and Biomarkers and response monitoring beyond PCR.

Presentations from a CML Opinion Leader Meeting

We are pleased to make available a new series of presentations from the COLT Meeting 2014, an annual CML Opinion Leader Training that took place in Adelaide (Australia). Modules currently featured include; high risk CML, optimizing therapy, front line therapy in CML chronic phase and new developments in CML - all presented by leaders in the field.
