EVANS MDS SUMMIT
The EvansMDS MDS Summit
Save the dates – October 15-16, 2020 for our next MDS Summit! Regrettably due to COVID-19 related travel concerns, we are in the process of moving from an in-person meeting format to a virtual format for 2020. We hope to once again meet in person for our 10 year anniversary in 2021.
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:
Tenth 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 These meetings allow researchers to share their unpublished work within the MDS community to obtain valuable peer feedback as well as to provide opportunities for the acceleration of new discoveries through the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.
