International Blood Conference to be Held in Milwaukee
Milwaukee was selected as the site for the 60th annual meeting of the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis because of the quality of research work conducted by MCW and the BloodCenter of Wisconsin. A Milwaukee BizTimes article notes that the conference, June 23-25, will draw 1,500 health care professionals from around the world and will generate $3.2 million in business for Milwaukee firms. Dr. Robert Montgomery (Pediatrics – Hematology/Oncology) is President of this year’s conference. Convention organizers include: Drs. Gilbert White (Associate Dean for the Blood Research Institute; Medicine – Hematology/Oncology), Thomas Abshire (Pediatrics – Hematology/Oncology), and Roy Silverstein (Medicine – Administration), and Helmut Weiler, PhD, (Physiology) and Peter Newman, PhD, (Pharmacology & Toxicology).
