ASH 2015: Dr. Stephan Stilgenbauer on clonal evolution in CLL (chronic lymphocytic leukemia) and update on many upcoming meetings

This week in the 2015 Conference Coverage section of the CLL Society website, we have posted an interview with Dr. Stephan Stilgenbauer as he discusses clonal evolution at the American Society of Hematology annual meeting in December 2015 in Orlando. You can see a summary and view his interview here.

Last week was very busy as I attended the CLL Research Consortium meeting from Wednesday through Friday and then took a redeye flight to Atlanta for a CLL educational meeting on Saturday. I spoke to the 30 attendees, and was thrilled that almost 90% of them already knew of the efforts we have been making with the CLL Society.

There are more meetings coming up for those of us affected by CLL:
