Congratulations to Jeyan Jayarajan and Ana-Matea Mikecin, who were both awarded oral presentations at the 2021 Annual Meeting of the European Hematology Association, which takes place on a virtual platform this year. Jeyan will talk about his work on myeloproliferative neoplasms, with a specific focus on the role of Jak2-mutant dormant stem cells in mediating therapy resistance. Matea’s talk will focus on her investigation into the comparative analysis of the functional consequences of hematopoietic stem cell activation from dormancy in response to different external stimuli. In addition, Mick will give an invited talk on the mechanisms of leukemic transformation in the setting of Fanconi anemia.
