One Lambda's Advanced HLA Technical Workshop will include a faculty of distinguished clinicians and scientists from the world-wide transplant community  who will discuss the importance of assessing patient risk in transplantation and strategies for knowledge-based HLA antibody identification.

The technical workshop will also include presentations from the winners of the HLA case study competition and presentations on the role of HLA antibodies and NGS in bone marrow transplantation. 

Event Information

We are pleased to announce the winners of our Case Study Competition. Several case studies were submitted from HLA laboratories from the United States and Canada. Each case study was judged anonymously by five highly experienced HLA professionals and the top five case studies were selected. Our winners will travel to Henderson, Nevada and will present their case study at our 2015 Advanced HLA Technical Workshop.
