About iwMDS


About the meeting

The international workshop on myelodysplastic syndromes (iwMDS) is an annual meeting where the world’s leading clinical researchers in MDS share their perspectives on how to place this evolving understanding in a clinical context and thereby optimize clinical care.

In keeping with the ethos of iwMDS, the emphasis of the workshop is on short, high-level presentations, sessions of interactive debate and panel discussions.

iwMDS is an annual workshop/think-tank bringing together leading international clinical and translational research minds in myelodysplastic syndromes in a face-to-face forum. Discussions around the current state-of-the-art in clinical care and research aim to set the agenda for clinical and translational research priorities for the future, in collaboration with relevant stakeholders.

Objectives are:

  • Create annual opportunity for scientific exchange of ideas, knowledge, and research in myelodysplastic syndromes
  • Enhance networking and inter-disciplinary collaborations
  • Create a platform for a united voice from scientific/research community to provide focused input into the research priorities
  • Improve clinical trial design and conduct to be more efficient and inclusive through robust interactions with industry partners, regulators, and patient advocacy groups
