Organizing committee: Philippe Kastner (Strasbourg), Leonid Bystrykh (Groningen), Antonella Ronchi (Milano)

This meeting is organized within the framework of the Marie-Curie International Training Network (ITN), Hem-Id ("Hematopoietic Identity"). This network comprises 12 research teams and 2 companies, and is focused on the understanding of the transcriptional regulation of hematopoiesis and leukemogenesis. The meeting in Strasbourg will be the closing event of this program.

This meeting will bring together scientists interested in understanding the fundamental aspects of hematopoiesis, with a special focus on the biology of hematopoietic stem cells. A dominant theme of the meeting will be how normal processes of hematopoiesis are regulated at the epigenetic level, and how deregulations of these processes are implicated in leukemia.

The meeting will feature invited prominent scientists in the field, as well as members of the consortium, as speakers. Selected abstracts will also be chosen for oral presentation by the organizing committee. A poster session will be organized.
The meeting will be organized around 3 major topics:
- Biology of the hematopoietic stem cell
- Epigenetic and hematopoiesis
- Epigenetic and leukemia

Speakers: Constanze Bonifer (Birmingham), Nina Cabezas-Walscheid (Heidelberg), Fernando Calero-Nieto (Cambridge), Susan Chan (Illkirch), Laurent Delva (Dijon), François Fuks (Brussels), Hartmut Geiger (Ulm), Gerald de Haan (Groningen), Jorn Lausen (Frankfurt), Markus Manz (Zurich), Qiong Lin (Aachen), Bo Porse (Copenhagen), Michael Rehli (Regensburg), Lenhard Rudoph (Jena), Jan Jacob Schuringa (Groningen), Eric Soler (Paris), Tim Somervaille (Manchester), Claudia Waskow (Dresden)
