Meeting Objectives

The National Institute of Diabetes & Digestive & Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) Hematology program is pleased to announce a workshop entitled, “Stress Erythropoiesis”. The goal of the workshop is to explore differences in erythropoiesis following acute stress, chronic stress and during normal “homeostatic” production of erythrocytes. A spectrum of extrinsic and intrinsic processes that occur under various stress conditions will be discussed. Consequences and changes in erythropoietin response, fetal hemoglobin expression and iron metabolism will be considered in normal and disease states. Ideally, new targets and strategies for treatment of anemia will be revealed. Please participate and join us in this endeavor.

Workshop Registration Deadline: 11:59 p.m. Eastern, October 11, 2011
