The organizers and sponsors are to be commended for assembling this high quality, exciting, and enjoyable symposium: the third in a series of scientific interchanges spanning various aspects of hematopoiesis. Drs. Nader G. Abraham, Joao Ascensao, Mehdi Tavassoli, Esmail Zanjani, and especially Richard D. Levere and the Department of Medicine, New York Medical College deserve special recognition for this successful event to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the National Institutes of Health.
