First-Time Literature Review

Who has time to read all of the medical science literature concerning cord blood and perinatal tissues, especially if you aren’t a clinician or investigator?

We’ve got you covered if you attend a first-time literature review session at the Cord Blood Connect international congress, Sept. 9-11 in Miami Beach. Several experts will briefly walk you through recent published studies that they believe are significant to the future of cord blood banking and therapies, and why they chose those articles.


“I’m very excited about the review,” said session chair Filippo Milano, director of the cord blood transplant program at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle. “This will be the first time for a literature review session at the congress. The goal is to highlight research published recently that has a potential of influencing the field of cord blood in the very near future.”

The session is entitled “Literature Review: Things You Would Have Read if You Had Time To Peruse All of the Literature in and Related to Our Field,” and is produced by the CBA Public and Professional Relations Committee. It will convene at 5:15 pm on the opening day of the congress, Sept. 9.
