NLM’s James B. Herrick Symposium: 100 Years of Sickle Cell Research
Registration is open for the James B. Herrick Symposium: 100 Years of Sickle Cell Research, on November 16-17, 2010, at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland.
The trans-NIH symposium will commemorate the 100th anniversary of Dr. James Herrick’s initial description of sickle cell anemia by convening leading sickle cell experts to celebrate research advances and explore promising new scientific opportunities. The symposium also will provide an opportunity for the NIH to honor the contributions of the many individuals with sickle cell disease who have, through their participation in clinical studies, made progress possible.
