The Red Cell Club Conference is an interactive meeting that fosters the exchange of published and unpublished data on all aspects of erythrocyte biology, ranging from developmental erythropoiesis to diagnosis and treatment of inherited and acquired erythrocyte disorders.
The meeting was started in the fall of 1958 by Drs. Joseph Hoffman and Daniel Tosteson (BCMD 27:54, 2001). As Dr. Hoffman has commented “The meeting has served the red cell community well and contributed substantively to the development of our field.” The club mirrors the interests and intensity of its members. Indeed, the small size and collegiality of the meeting has spurred many collaborative efforts.
The meeting this fall will be held at the University of Rochester, Rochester, NY on October 11 and 12, 2019. The University of Rochester has a rich, fifty-year history of red blood cell-related research, ranging from hereditary spherocytosis and blood cell rheology to current programs in erythroid gene regulation, in vitro red blood cell production, and red cell membrane mechanical properties. We look forward to your participation in the meeting this fall.
