Dear Colleagues and Friends,
On behalf of the Society of Hematologic Oncology, it is our pleasure to welcome you to the SOHO Highlights 2021 Meeting. SOHO was established in 2021 with aims to promote worldwide research, education, prevention, clinical studies and optimal patient care in all aspects of hematologic malignancies. Since that time, SOHO has grown from a membership base of 400 to nearly 6,000 in 2021. Organized by its founders and world class committees, SOHO is the only society specific to this field.
Nearly 2,300 hematologic oncology specialists from 110 countries participated in the virtual Ninth Annual Meeting of the Society (SOHO 2021) in September 2021. Approximately 180 topics were presented during the 3.5 day meeting from over 130 of the top investigators in the field. The "SOHO Highlights: State of the Art and Next Questions" program will highlight the most important data presented at SOHO 2021 [State of the Art] as well as discuss what to expect in the near-term [Next Questions].
The "SOHO Highlights" meeting is designed to provide participants with an overview of the latest advances in hematologic malignancies and a preview of where the field is going next. Investigators from around the world will join the meeting for a day of learning and interactive, virtual discussion with the speakers. Each presentation is 25 minutes followed by a 10-minute, live Questions & Answer session with the audience. Note that the Zoom webinar platform will be utilized to facilitate interaction with attendees.
We hope you will find the meeting productive, informative and enjoyable. We would like to thank all SOHO members, attendees and industry partners whose contributions and participation have been essential to the success of the society.
