Publications in peer-reviewed journals are a major source for keeping up with the latest developments in your field. However, you may not have always sufficient time to study (difficult) publications thoroughly and to determine the impact on your clinical practice. To support you, has developed a new program format, the ‘Quarterly Focus , which brings together an expert panel and the authors of relevant, selected publications in an innovative way to explain and discuss the new data.

The selection for the first edition of Quarterly Focus on Hemato-Oncology has been made by prof. dr. Gert Ossenkoppele, VUmc Amsterdam, Netherlands. Three pivotal, international publications from the past few months will be clarified by one of the authors and will be thoroughly discussed by an expert panel including the author. The program will give you the unique possibility to gain more insight into the selected publications and to interact with the expert panel and the authors.

The expert panel consists of:

  • Prof. Gert Ossenkoppele, MD, hematologist, VUmc, Amsterdam, Netherlands;
  • Prof. Gerwin Huls, MD, hematologist, UMCG, Groningen; Netherlands;
  • Peter Valk, Ph.D., molecular biologist, Erasmus MC, Rotterdam, Netherlands.
