Launch of the EBMT Young Ambassador Programme 2018

Are you a young scientist, doctor or nurse? Do you want to connect with the EBMT leadership? If so, the EBMT Young Ambassador Programme is for you!

The EBMT is announcing the second edition of its Young Ambassador (YA) Programme with the objective to highlight the young generation of scientists, doctors and nurses in the field of HSCT and Cellular Therapy.

The first edition welcomed eight young talented ambassadors from Greece, France, Lebanon, China, Croatia, Romania and Spain. These eight YA were granted free registration and travel grants to the Annual Meeting 2017 in Marseille and a great opportunity to network with EBMT leadership.

To learn more about the YA programme 2017, read the posts and view the EBMT-TV interviews.
