"Dear Friends and Colleagues,

You are cordially invited to attend the XXI Turku Symposium on Stem Cell Transplantation which will be held in Turku, Finland, May 24, 2019.

We are honored to have outstanding speakers in the field of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantations. During the last decade, after several attempts, we have seen a successful approach of haploidentical transplants. T-cell replete haploidentical transplantation has been an important milestone, not only because offering an opportunity to get a suitable donor for the great majority of the patients, but also because of an plausible decrease of the risk of severe GVHD, which might also open new insights to the pathophysiology of GVHD. Furthermore, haploidentical transplant might also serve as a platform for immunological interventions to prevent post-transplant relapse. In addition to allogeneic transplants, interesting issues in both basic cancer biology, pathogenesis of acute GVHD, and clinical transplantation will be covered.

We are very pleased to welcome you in Turku."
