In addition to its year-round active projects and collaborations, the Scientific and Standardization Committee (SSC) of the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) holds annual meetings that allow for the discussion of diagnostic standards, disease nomenclature and classification, and the latest research on bleeding and thrombotic disorders. These focused, cutting-edge sessions form the basis for advancements and innovations within the field of thrombosis and hemostasis.

PrintAs part of the ISTH 2015 Congress, the SSC will meet Saturday and Sunday, June 20-21. The following highlights, shared by SSC Chair Sabine Eichinger, offer an overview of some of the topics and sessions to be covered at the SSC subcommittee meetings.
