    1. The ISBT Forum

      Dear members of ISBT

      Welcome to the ISBT Community Forum. This forum is a space for educating, sharing and learning. We invite you to explore the different categories of the forum, join or create discussions about different topics related to Transfusion Medicine. 

      We would like to ask you to respect the forum guidelines and not post offensive content or content that is not related to transfusion medicine (or people working in transfusion medicine). Disregarding the forum guidelines will lead to a ban from the ISBT forum. You can find the ISBT Community Forum guidelines online.

    2. Young Investigators

      Welcome Young Investigators,

      After some time on a LinkedIn forum, we decided to create a platform where everyone is free to interact and
      share thoughts. Share your experiences, challenges you face and what you have learned that could (not) be
      useful to others. Anything is possible! Please respect the forum guidelines as posted on the main ISBT
      community forum. 

      This sub-forum is accessible only for you, and serves as a means of facilitating discussion and sharing
      between Young Investigators worldwide. If you have any questions about the forum, please feel free to ask
      the ISBT Central Office via wingerden@isbtweb.org.

      Feel free to create a new thread or comment on fellow Young Investigators. We would love to hear from you!

    • Dear Young Investigators, Are you thinking about going to the Toronto Congress this year? In June ISBT will once again organise an International Congress on blood transfusion and transfusion medicine. The deadline for submitting your abstract is February 22, just over one month away. The main requirements for submitting your abstracts are that it should be on a topic related to transfusion medicine, you should be under 35 years of age (40 if you are applying for the Harold Gunson Fellowship, more information also in this post), and the first, submitting, and presenting author of your abstract. Find out more on the Toronto website!  When you submit your abstract you can also apply for the Harold Gunson Fellowship, a travel grant that will cover your travel, hotel and registration costs. If you want to know more about applying for the Harold Gunson Fellowship you can find more information about submitting your abstract on the congress website.  In Toronto another Young Investigators Breakfast will be organised where you can network with professionals in your field. Some of you have attended the breakfast meeting at past ISBT congresses, feel free to share your experience so fellow young researchers know what they can gain from this meeting.   At the 34th International Congress in 2016, ISBT introduced the Young Investigator Session. In this scientific session we gave Young Investigators the opportunity to present their transfusion medicine research in an oral presentation. If you would like to apply for this session you can tick the 'Young Investigator'-box when you submit your abstract for the congress. Note; the deadline for submitting your abstract is February 22, 2018. Look around this forum for tips on writing your abstract and presenting it. How often have you submitted an abstract to a transfusion medicine congress?
