For the first time, during the course of its general annual meeting, the BHS hosted a satellite meeting organized by the Belgian Society for Analytical Cytology (BVAC/ABCA) to bring together clinicians with laboratory scientists and staff. The BVAC/ABCA program included state-of-the-art lectures, followed by a session focused on advances in genetic testing of haematological malignancies and finally a satellite symposium sponsored by Alexion on the deficiencies of complement regulators leading to thrombotic micro-angiopathies (TMA). All these presentations are available on the BVAC/ABCA website:
