We were very pleased to award two of our members scholarships to attend the recent EBMT meeting in Paris, 3 – 6 April 2011.
1. Educational Scholarship
Liz Dunn, Matron at Guy’s Hospital, has started her PhD and wanted to attend the meeting to explore the current key issues in stem cell transplant ation and gauge what should be applied to her studies. We wish Liz all the best of luck and will be inviting her to our meeting in Manchester on 17 November 2011 to update us on her progress.
2. EBMT Travel Scholarship
Tom Marler-Hauser, Charge Nurse at King’s College Hospital, submitted an abstract that was accepted for poster presentation. It explores an early warning score for the deteriorating stem cell transplant patient. We look forward to Tom presenting this at our London meeting on 30 June 2011.
