VCCC Haematology Lecture: Autografting for multiple sclerosis and scleroderma

Special guest Associate Professor John Moore 

The VCCC, in partnership with the Austin Haematology Department, invite you to join us for a special guest lecture.  Hear from Associate Professor John Moore from St Vincent’s Hospital, Sydney, a national, if not global leader in the field. The lecture will cover both multiple sclerosis and scleroderma which are the main diseases being treated around the world.

With extensive experience in stem cell transplantation and immunotherapy spanning 20 years, Associate Professor John Moore is an active member of the stem cell transplant community here and internationally. He has held positions on the Bone Marrow Transplant Committee of the Australian Leukaemia and Lymphoma Group (ALLG) and the Auto-Immune Sub-Committee of the European Group for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EBMT).

This event will also introduce and showcase the VCCC Online Haematological Educational Resources. This is a series of resources developed in conjunction with VCCC alliance members for use by clinicians working in haematology.
