It is a privilege to invite you to our 9th Kaunas / Lithuania International Hematology / Oncology Colloquium. Despite having a short history, the meeting has an astonishing record of highlights. Key opinion leaders have reported their latest insights in malignant hematology, stem cell plasticity, gene editing and cellular therapy. This year we tried to pick up again the newest and most relevant achievements in experimental and clinical hematology. We are extremely happy that leading scientists agree to share their insights and visions and are at disposition to exchange experience and answer open questions. Developments in drug discoveries and early clinical studies have led to new recommendations. Some of them are submitted or near to be submitted for publication and will be presented for the first time at the meeting. Latest news on stem cell transplantation including GvHD and CAR-T from T- and NK-cells and virus specific T-Cells will be additional highlights of the meeting. Finally, we are extremely happy that so many abstracts were submitted. We have selected the best one for a short presentation.

We hope that the colloquium will be useful to you as a physician across different disciplines, as a scientist, as a nurse and as a student. Even if the meeting is hybrid, you will have enough time to discuss on the edge topics with the presenters. Many thanks to the Hospital of Lithuanian University of Health Sciences Kauno Klinikos and the Lithuanian University of Health Sciences for hosting such an outstanding forum.

Thank you for your participation.
