Dear Colleagues and Friends

As representatives of GATMO-TC, Argentine Group of Bone Marrow Transplantation and Cell Therapy and subcommission of the Argentine Society of Hematology, we are pleased to inform that we will held the 2nd Argentinean Congress of Hematopoietic Transplantation an Cell Therapy on May 20-21, 2021.

The first edition of the GATMO Congress held in 2017 was very important and enriching for the hematopoietic transplant area of our country; with 8 foreign guests of high academic level and more than 500 participants from Latin America.

For this reason, we hope that the second edition of the congress will convene a similar audience with the participation not only of hematologists but also of internists, infectologists, hemotherapists, nurses, biologists and biochemists.

We believe the success of the Congress will be based on achieving a work space with an attractive scientific program developed on graft versus host disease, post-transplant maintenance therapies, advances in pathologies such as Acute Leukemia and Multiple Myeloma in the area of transplantation and development of new drugs, with the participation of international and national speakers of academic renown.

We invite you to join us and be an active part of our project for which we have selected CyC marketing events as the organizing company of the congress.
