The 77th Annual Meeting of the Japanese Society of Hematology

The 77th Annual Meeting of the Japanese Society of Hematology (JSH2015) will be held on October 16-18, 2015 at Ishikawa Ongakudo, ANA Crowne Plaza Kanazawa, Hotel Nikko Kanazawa, Hotel Kanazawa, and Kanazawa Art Hall. Located within a radius of 100 meters from JR Kanazawa Station, all these multiple venues are connected by underground passageways. Kanazawa will be the location for our annual congress for the fourth time, following the 1977 meeting of the Japanese Society of Hematology (chaired by Kenichi Hattori) and the 1981 meeting (chaired by Kenichi Hattori) and 1998 meeting (chaired by Tamotsu Matsuda) of the Japanese Society of Clinical Hematology. Although attendees will need to make the effort to travel to this local city by the Sea of Japan, the venue hotels and many other lodgings around Kanazawa Station will allow everyone to come and go between their hotels and the congress venues on foot.

The main theme will be “Learning Human Biology from Patients.” Research on blood diseases benefits from the high availability of pathologic specimens such as by blood drawing and bone marrow aspiration. Hematology has emerged and evolved in line with the advances in medical care for patients. As a clinician, I have encountered many cases that have allowed me to feel the fascination of biological discovery through hematopoietic stem cell transplantation and bone marrow failure medicine. While science cannot evolve without basic research involving animal experiments, numerous new findings have been made by clinicians through their practice from a scientific viewpoint. We hope the coming meeting in the old city of Kanazawa will catalyze interactive research in our field where challenges encountered by clinical hematologists in their routine practice are resolved by basic researchers, and the achievements are then utilized in actual clinical practice.

Dr. Erwin von Bälz, a German physician who laid the foundation for Japan’s modern medicine, is said to have proposed at the first meeting of the Japanese Association of Medical Sciences in 1902, “The most important thing for participants in academic meetings is to exchange diverse opinions and experiences, rather than listening to lectures”. When attending an academic meeting, I gain the greatest pleasure from conversing with speakers face-to-face. Traditionally, poster presentations at the meetings of the Japanese Society of Hematology have required the presenters to talk about their work for several minutes. Although this system provides a good opportunity for young physicians to announce their research achievements, it allows only a limited time for the audience to ask questions directly to the presenter, who is not in front of the poster except during the short presentation time. Accordingly, we have decided to introduce a new system as a trial, at the JSH2015. There will be no time allocated for presentations in front of posters; instead, the presenter will stay there for 30 minutes. Even with this method, the time for direct communication between presenter and audience will be limited. To ensure meaningful discussion with the presenter, you are encouraged to read the abstract by the time the congress opens, or to study the poster during your spare time before the start of the poster presentation. In addition, session chairs will be asked to facilitate discussion by posing at least one question concerning the presentation at the session.

Following the trend toward internationalization of our activities, which was strongly promoted by the former president, Yuzuru Kanakura, we have invited three outstanding scientists from abroad to talk about their work. Dr. Neal Young from the NIH will give a special lecture entitled “Stem Cells and the Immune System in Aplastic Anemia”. We will also listen to “Stem Cell Gene Therapy Trial for Monogenic Diseases” by Dr. David A. Williams, president of the American Society of Hematology (ASH), and “Molecular Pathogenesis of the Myeloproliferative Neoplasms” by Dr. Tony Green, President Elect of the European Hematology Association (EHA). Two joint symposia will be held: “Donor Selection in Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation: Haplo Versus Cord Blood” and “Basics and Clinics of DIC” in cooperation with the ASH and the EHA, respectively. In addition, for the second consecutive year, a panel discussion focusing on lymphoid malignancies will be held jointly with academic societies of other Asian countries. For postdoctoral researchers and graduate students, we are also planning to provide a few sessions of the Scientific Exchange Training Program (SETP), which was well received at the JSH2014, with the participation of a number of experts from the American Society of Hematology as commentators.

Kanazawa is an attractive city with an abundance of Japanese traditional culture, the performing arts and scenic spots. It is also known for its excellent food, including fish, sake, and confectionery. The whole city is being rejuvenated with the extension of the Hokuriku Shinkansen from Nagano to Kanazawa. After the end of the congress programs, participants will be able to relax by visiting the Kenrokuen Garden, Chayagai and other fascinating places of this ancient city. For dinner, a wide variety of delicious food can be found in Katamachi and Korinbo, the commercial centers of the city. I look forward to welcoming many participants.
