We are pleased to announce the launch of a new EAHAD membership website.
The new site allows you to easily access the Congress registration platform and benefit from reduced fees for members. It also provides quick links to the most relevant information for members including funding opportunities, upcoming events, and publications.
We are very pleased to announce that EAHAD is expanding its team in 2018. We are looking to recruit a Project Manager to oversee EUHASS, a pharmacovigilance program to monitor the safety of treatments for people with inherited bleeding disorders in Europe. The ideal candidate will have experience working in a health-related research environment and will be a self-starter with excellent organisational skills.
The deadline to apply is 14 January 2018 at 23:59 CET.

The 2016 Annual Report is now available to consult and download.
It includes statistics from our 9th Congress, which took place in Malmö, Sweden; a look at what was achieved by our committees and working parties; an update on European haemophilia centre certifications; as well as information on our funding and governance structure.
*Deadline extended to 10 January 2018*
EAHAD is excited to announce that our 2018 Congress will feature a half-day workshop for Young Investigators on 6 February on the topic of:
Research projects have the aim to answer questions that are essential for medical progress. To perform a successful research project, it is essential to formulate the right research question and to use the right design for the study.
At the 2017 EAHAD Annual General Meeting held in February in Paris, France, Professor Hervé Chambost was elected to the association’s Executive Committee. We took the opportunity to ask him a few questions to get to know him better and find out what motivated him to become involved.
EAHAD will be awarding travel grants to junior physicians and scientists (35 years old or younger), PhD students, post-doctoral researchers, nurses, physiotherapists, and other allied healthcare professionals wishing to attend the EAHAD 2018 Congress taking place in Madrid, Spain from 7-9 February.
The EAHAD-DB F7 Variant Database is now up on the web and is available.
This has been a major project for the EAHAD-DB Steering Group as the level of complexity is much greater than for variants in the F8 and F9 genes which result in haemophilia A and B. This is partly because there are two F7 genes per cell (being an autosomal disorder) and also because factor VII plasma levels are associated with some common polymorphisms.
EAHAD is proud to award research grants to support scientific projects aimed at improving the care of people with inherited bleeding disorders. The grant competition is open to all scientists and healthcare providers working in the field of inherited bleeding disorders in Europe and undertaking pre-clinical or clinical research. The grants of up to €50,000 each are for projects lasting up to three years.
For this inaugural competition, EAHAD received 23 applications from 11 countries.
The two recipients for 2017, first announced during the EAHAD 2017 Congress, are:
