The Executive, Scientific and Organising Committees invite you to participate in the 8th New Directions in Leukaemia Research (NDLR) meeting to be held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre in Queensland, Australia, from 30 May – 1 June, 2022.

The goal of the NDLR conferences is to bring together scientists and clinicians to discuss emerging paradigms and breakthroughs at the forefront of leukaemia research and treatment, from the molecular basis of leukaemia to new therapies emerging in the clinic.

As one of the premier international leukaemia conferences, NDLR 2022 will again bring together early-career investigators and senior scientists. Attendees will hear of recent findings in basic and translational research through interaction with local and international experts, allowing new collaborations to be forged.

Leukaemia research has undergone an unprecedented revolution in recent years and this is beginning to deliver a real and significant impact in the clinic. The biennial NDLR conferences offer a unique opportunity for scientists and clinicians to keep pace with such a rapidly evolving field.

We look forward to seeing you at NDLR 2022.
