Welcome note from our host

We are pleased to welcome you to the 9th WBMT WORKSHOP, which takes place on September 25-28, 2024, in the esteemed locale of Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.

The local organization of this event is done by the First Central Hospital of Mongolia. Established in 1925. In 2010, we embarked on an ambitious journey to establish a Bone Marrow Transplantation (BMT) program. This program saw its first milestone in 2014 with the successful completion of our first autologous transplant and we achieved another milestone in 2022 with our first allogeneic transplant.

Recognizing the importance of advancing our BMT services, we are now aimed to take the next step in our development. Our goal is to enhance our capacities and extend our services to include pediatric bone marrow transplantation. This initiative is a testament to our commitment to providing comprehensive and inclusive care for all age groups.

The workshop endeavors to serve as a distinguished forum, facilitating attendees in acquainting themselves with refined and efficacious methodologies and approaches in hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. With great assurance, we anticipate that this gathering will provide a comprehensive platform for the acquisition of fresh insights, the honing of skills, and the collaborative resolution of pertinent challenges within the discipline.

The 9th WBMT WORKSHOP is poised to be an instructive, and unforgettable occasion, uniting leading authorities to exchange their wealth of experiences and perspectives. We extend a heartfelt invitation to all esteemed professionals engaged in the realm of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation to converge in Ulaanbaatar, the distinguished capital of Mongolia, for this stimulating workshop.

We cordially extend this invitation to join us at the 9th WBMT WORKSHOP, eagerly anticipating an enriching and productive interchange of ideas.
