Welcome to the
65th Annual Meeting of the Society of Thrombosis and Hemostasis Research
23 - 26 February 2021, Centre de Congrès Beaulieu Lausanne
Bienvenue à Lausanne…
...to the 65th Annual Meeting of the Society of Thrombosis and Hemostasis Research.
For the first time in its history, the GTH congress will be held in the French-speaking part of Switzerland: “La Romandie”.
I really hope that this attractive location will enable participants from all Switzerland, Germany and Austria, France and Italy, and possibly from other European countries to gather in Lausanne for four days of science and clinical practice in hemostasis.
Hemostasis is just fascinating! In my experience, one of the several reasons is its interdisciplinary character, which we realize daily discussing clinical cases with colleagues from other medical specialties: in emergency rooms and operating theatres, on pediatric wards, in the lab and in clinics as diverse as hepatology, obstetrics, or hematology.
The 2021 GTH congress will focus on interdisciplinary aspects of hemostasis, opening the doors to colleagues from other medical fields, and opening the minds towards different points of view and ways of thinking hemostasis.
We have a privileged profession! Daily, we meet human beings in quite vulnerable phases of their lives – this is our greatest responsibility. Doing research, we can create knowledge – this is our greatest challenge.
Clinical passion and research! My first medical teacher, Carlofelice Beretta-Piccoli (1946-1994) used to say to us young residents and exemplified through his own professional life that an accomplished physician is intellectually curious, scientifically accurate and able to “appassionarsi al destino del paziente”.
The motto of the 65th Annual Meeting of the Society of Thrombosis and Hemostasis Research – ACROSS BORDERS – stands for all of this: Internationality, Interdisciplinary Hemostasis, Science and Humanity.
We – the local, Swiss and international organizing committees – are working for setting up the frame conditions for a successful scientific congress. However, only if you will submit your best research abstracts and actively participate, the congress will become “enriching and memorable”.
