Foreword CTT Vol. 2 No. 5

The aim of the European Group for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EBMT) is to promote and facilitate access to state-of-the-art and cutting-edge knowledge in blood and marrow transplantation. The EBMT Paediatric Diseases Working Party (EBMT PDWP) has grown during the last few years and currently has more than 20 European countries and at least three non-European countries participating in its activities. This international profile feeds the background against which most of the actual debate on stem cell transplantation in children takes place.

The PDWP firmly believes that children can only be treated by specially trained and experienced pediatric hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) teams.

The upcoming meeting will explore the major issues impacting on HSCT in children and adolescents. Leading experts will present and exchange innovative science and discuss specific clinical problems with the audience.

The EBMT PDWP is very enthusiastic about the joint meeting—which will give a full picture of the interdisciplinary approach—and thanks the organizers for the possibility to come to the wonderful venue of St. Petersburg.
