The goal of the meeting is to bring together investigators working on various aspects of hematopoiesis. Through the exchange of knowledge and ideas, it is anticipated that new concepts and approaches to hematopoiesis will arise. During the last few years our understanding of the regulation of hematopoiesis at the molecular level has greatly increased. This has resulted from the identification of the genes that are involved and the use of mammalian genetic approaches to precisely define the roles of individual genes. One of the challenges of the new information has been to integrate the rapidly expanding data to more accurately define the processes involved. An understanding of the individual genes and their interrelationship in controlling normal hematopoiesis will further our understanding of the malignant transformation of hematopoietic cells and provide additional targets for the rational development of therapeutic agents. A more detailed understanding of hematopoiesis will allow the identification of points for therapeutic intervention.
