The European society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EBMT) is a non-profit organisation that was established in 1974 in order to allow scientists and physicians involved in clinical bone marrow transplantation to share their experience and develop co-operative studies. The EBMT aims to promote all aspects associated with the transplantation of blood stem cells from all donor sources and donor types including basic and clinical research, education, standardisation, quality control, and accreditation for transplant procedures. The EBMT organises every year an Annual Meeting in Spring. It bringstogether over 4,500 scientists, physicians, nurses, statisticians, data managers, biologists, technicians and patients and remains an important moment to ensure and encourage exchange, education and scientific productivity in order to improve upon what has been built over the years.
