What is tomy's?
"tomy's" (Teva's Orphan hematological Malignancies award for Young hematologistS and researchers) is an educational award program for young hematologists/researchers, organized by Teva Oncology.
Each year, the tomy's program will recognize young hematologists/researchers who can illustrate the latest scientific advances in the management of orphan hematological malignancies by presenting their research in a didactic and engaging manner, demonstrating their excellence in education and presentation skills.
The first award was presented during a Teva-organized symposium at ACUTE LEUKEMIAS XVI in Munich, Germany, in February 2017.
The final presentations for the second tomy's award will take place during a Teva-organized session at the 7th International Symposium on Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia, which will be held in Rome, Italy, from September 24 to 27, 2017.
Why is Teva Oncology sponsoring this initiative?
