Dr. Edward M. Sotomayor to Speak at D.C. Lymphoma Research Foundation Workshop

Eduardo M. Sotomayor, M.D., director of the George Washington (GW) University Cancer Center and professor of medicine at the GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences, will speak at the Lymphoma Workshop: Understanding Lymphoma Basics and Current Treatment Options hosted by the D.C. Lymphoma Research Foundation, in partnership with the GW Cancer Center. The purpose of the workshop is to provide the lymphoma community with the clinical and research updates about the cancer and chronic lymphatic leukemia, current treatment options, and support issues.

Sotomayor will speak on two topics during the workshop: “Promising New Therapies" and “Mantle Cell Lymphoma," an aggressive subtype of B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma and his particular interest for which he has developed an extensive portfolio of research initiatives. Sotomayor, along with other speakers, will then participate in a question-and-answer session.

Sotomayor is internationally recognized in the field of lymphoma research and treatment. He has published over 100 manuscripts, many of which have been included in leading journals. Sotomayor has also received several awards for his research accomplishments surrounding lymphoma. He is affiliated with the American Society of Hematology, American Society of Clinical Oncology, and the American Association for Cancer Research.

The D.C. Lymphoma Research Foundation is the largest non-profit devoted exclusively to funding innovative lymphoma research and providing patients and health care professionals with the latest information about the cancer.

The workshop will take place Saturday, March 18 at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C. and is open to lymphoma patients, their caregivers, and members of the lymphoma community.
