The program of the 2021 AABB Virtual Annual Meeting is designed to help advance the field, promote practice-changing research and further attendees’ professional development. At the forefront of this year’s meeting will be the education sessions and high-quality research presented—two aspects that make AABB’s Annual Meeting the preeminent event for the field. The deadline for abstract submission has closed, and accepted abstracts will be published in the journal Transfusion. AABB will present up to 10 Outstanding Abstract Awards for Trainees, chosen by peer review and determination of scientific merit and abstract quality.
“The Selection of Abstracts Committee first and foremost looks for high quality, innovative research that will move the field forward,” said Melissa Cushing, MD, chair of the Committee. “Whether the topic is in leadership, administrative, scientific, clinical or quality, we require sound research methodology and originality.”
As always, the AABB Annual Meeting is the place for the field to come together, discuss the latest advances and challenges, and help move the field forward. As the blood and biotherapies field continues to work together to address the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 AABB Virtual Annual Meeting provides an important opportunity to connect with colleagues on both a personal and professional level.
