IPIG 2020 Annual Scientific Meeting Will Be Virtual

Statement of 22 September 2020 from the IPIG Board of Directors

The IPIG Board of Directors has unanimously agreed that the International PNH Interest Group 2020 Annual Scientific Meeting will be offered in virtual format.  This decision was reached after the American Society of Hematology (ASH) announced that its own annual meeting would be presented as an all-virtual event, and in consideration of the continuing impact of COVID-19 on national and international travel.

Our IPIG Annual Meeting, historically held the Friday evening prior to the opening of ASH, would ordinarily have convened this year on 4 December.  However, it is likely we will schedule this year’s IPIG meeting modestly earlier than ASH to avoid competing with other ASH ancillary events.  Also, given the dispersion of IPIG members across the globe, we are seeking an optimal time of day that will allow as many members as possible to join us across multiple time zones.  We hope that the virtual format will allow those of our members who do not  typically attend ASH the opportunity to participate in this year’s IPIG Annual Meeting .

As usual, thanks to the generosity of our Corporate Partners, participation of IPIG members in our 2020 Annual Scientific Meeting will be free of charge.  Members will, however, be asked to register their attendance in order to participate in the virtual event.

As we move planning forward for our 2020 virtual meeting, we will keep members informed by email and on this website about the meeting date and time, agenda, and registration procedure. If you have questions in the meantime, please email us at
