researcher, she will review the evidence and role of inherited thrombophilia testing in daily practice.
Doing something you're passionate about, having a connection with
a productive research mentor, and
seizing opportunities were key factors that contributed to Dr. Middeldorp's early success as a researcher.
"If you get an opportunity, you have
to grab it and you have to do it very
well. My mentor Dr. Harry Büller gave me a lot of opportunities
to present my research, and I think

scientific advances in understanding the pathogenesis of cancer development in individuals and families with germline mutations and
predisposition to bone marrow-

grouped roughly by phenotype.
The group of speakers was diverse,

his presentation at the ASH Friday Scientific Workshop on rare varients affecting MDS/AML susceptibility.

and Dr. Godley stated that their
worldwide representation reflected
the international aspect of the field.
Drs. Anna Brown and Tim Graubert led the first session on platelet
dysfunction, focusing on mutations
in RUNX1, ETV6, and ANKRD26.

These syndromes tend to cause a
period of nearly lifelong thrombocytopenia and/or platelet dysfunction followed often, but not always,
