Location: NCI at Shady Grove, Gaithersburg, MD
Description: The anticipated goal is to provide set of revised and improved diagnosis and staging recommendations, define the highest interest directions in research of cGVHD biology and biomarkers, and produce a firm proposal for a communal approach to the development of the reliable response criteria instruments. The meeting will also address methods to produce evidence on utilization and benefit of the new guidelines. At his time we will make this time also a concentrated effort to reexamine current knowledge of cGVHD biology in humans to inform future research.
