The EvansMDS MDS Summit

Save the dates – October 18-19, 2018 for our next MDS Summit! The next EvansMDS meeting of investigators working on the most ground breaking MDS research will be held at the Broad Institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

In addition to sponsoring our own MDS Summits, EvansMDS provides support for meetings organized by other organizations which cover important aspects of MDS medical research.

Past meetings include:

MDS Summit 2017

Workshop on Splicing Factor Mutations in Cancer (October 29 – 30, 2016)

MDS Summit 2016

Eleventh International Workshop on the Molecular Aspects of Myeloid Stem Cell Development and Leukemia

Collaboration is Critical for the Advancement of MDS Therapies

Mr. Evans was frustrated by the siloed nature of medical research. He believed that collaboration between specialized researchers was critical to achieving rapid progress and realizing significant patient benefits. EvansMDS extends this vision through the specifics of our granting process and through our sponsorship of important meetings of MDS researchers pursuing cutting edge topics. These meetings allow researchers to share their unpublished work within the MDS community to obtain valuable peer feedback as well as to provide opportunities for the acceleration of new discoveries through the synergistic combination of laboratories working on complementary investigations, or with access to alternative patient populations, supporting data, techniques, or samples.
