Letter from Our Executive Chair

Welcome to the 2023 NICER Hybrid Symposium, “Where the Wild Cells Are: Understanding How Disruptions in the Immune System Impact Hematopoiesis,” hosted in Pittsburgh, PA. We are excited to have you join us either in-person or virtually as we explore the raucous (sometimes seemingly over-imaginative) immune system as it tests the limits of hematopoiesis and our ability to tame the wild cells. As in past years, the 2023 symposium is delighted to continue audience favorites such as the “Pro-Con Debates” and “Tales of the Case Conference” where we will emphasize the multi-specialty nature of immuno-heme disorders and highlight recent advances along with ongoing knowledge gaps. A special in- person version of the “Speed Networking” will be hosted for in-person attendees as well as entertaining evening events. Additionally, we are continuing our focus on giving back to both our academic peers and the patient communities via a Wednesday morning virtual patient-facing session hosted by Race for Immunology and a Thursday morning virtual “Immuno-Heme 101” session highlighting common symptoms and counseling needs encountered by primary care providers and subspecialists alike when caring for our rare disease patients.


Looking forward to seeing you at the symposium!
