Registrations are now open for the inaugural Blood Genomics Symposium 2018 which will be held on Friday 29 June at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, Melbourne.
It will feature a range of presentations by local experts and a keynote address covering practical transfusion genomics by Professor Willem Ouwehand from Cambridge University in the United Kingdom.
Topics on offer include genomics and precision medicine, genomics in the clinic, and future transfusion genomics.
The full-day event will be held in place of the annual Transfusion Update Conference.

The Blood Service, in partnership with three health services, has developed a new resource: the Toolkit for Maternity Blood Management: Improving identification and management of iron deficiency anaemia.
Last November we distributed an online survey to both private and public transfusion-specific/multidisciplinary laboratories to identify transfusion-related education requirements.
