Dr. Edward M. Conway’s 11-year tenure as director of the Centre for Blood Research was characterized by boundless energy and enthusiasm. A virtual symposium in April 2021 brought together researchers from Canada and the United States to pay tribute to Conway’s leadership and his contributions to blood research.
For the second year, the International Society of Blood Transfusion (ISBT) offered their annual congress online. In June 2021, the virtual “ISBT In Focus” explored the latest in transfusion medicine and science, immunohematology and cellular therapies. In today’s blog, two Canadian Blood Services’ delegates describe their experiences at the congress.
