WFH 2018: Knowledge within your reach

Access a wealth of resources

From educational materials, to an exhibition hall and many networking opportunities – discover all the resources the WFH 2018 World Congress has to offer this May in Glasgow, Scotland.

Professional development sessions and workshops

Be part of meaningful information exchanges by participating in targeted learning sessions for both health care professionals and patients. Kick off your experience at Congress with one of our many workshops. Some can’t-miss sessions include:

  • Women and Bleeding Disorders” which will cover the issues that impact women in our community, including changes in factor levels in pregnancy and appropriate hemostatic treatment.
  • Gene therapy: Back to Basics” which will go in depth into the emerging field of gene therapy—a research area that holds great promise for our field.

Can’t-miss plenary speaker: Thierry van den Driessche, MD

"Gene therapy: Ready for prime time?"  

Professor van den Driessche, MD, obtained his PhD at the Free University of Brussels (Belgium) in 1992 and was a visiting fellow at the Weizmann Institute for Science (Israel) in the field of gene therapy for cancer. His main research focuses on gene therapy for hereditary diseases—particularly hemophilia—and the development of improved gene therapy and gene editing technologies. Through preclinical models, his team has postulated that hemophilia A can be cured by gene therapy.



A cutting edge program

A wide selection of panel discussions will once again be featured at this year’s Congress, showcasing experts from various backgrounds. Sample some of the exceptional content from the WFH 2016 World Congress in Orlando.
