GoCART clinical case discussion series on CART

Do you want to join on 16th November at 4 pm CEST, please register here to join this free activity!

The GoCART Coalition, it’s cofounders EBMT and EHA, together with King Faisal Hospital Riyadh are organising a series of educational clinical case discussions on CAR T-cell therapies. In each meeting we will present and discuss 2 cases to help meeting participants gain from the experiences of experts in the field!

After the first two successful GoCART Clinical Case Discussions on CAR T-cells it is our great pleasure to invite you to the next meeting that will take place on 16th November from 4-5 pm CET. The meeting will be hosted by Dr. Osman Ahmed and Dr. Julio Delgado, Prof. Dr. Monique Minnema and Prof. Dr. Martin Dreyling as our panel experts! 

We will be discussing two real-life clinical cases as instructive examples of CAR T-cell treatments, toxicity management and outcomes. Our previous meetings have shown that the Clinical Case Discussion series are valuable to trainees as well as established physicians. “From paper to the exciting and sometimes difficult reality of CAR T cells, please join our GoCART expert panel meeting for practical insights.”
