ASHI University — exciting things are coming!
ASHI
The ASHI Education Committee is excited to announce that ASHI University is about to launch a newly redesigned website for web-based learning. Along with the new website, there are newly designed modules. The “classic” ASHI modules are now being reformatted and provided with a new ASHI Procedure Manual chapter for each module. All new ASHI-U modules are being written with a procedure manual chapter as well. The goal is to eventually update the entire procedure manual as a web-based resource.

Look for the launch of the new ASHI-U website and new look coming soon, along with the first procedure manual chapters. In addition, ASHI will hold a “FREE DAY” later this year so that everyone can experience ASHI-U web-based learning for a day and see what a great value it is for ASHI members.

A*STAR researchers have now resolved a longstanding puzzle concerning the receptor proteins that NK cells use to distinguish between normal and abnormal cells. Their work suggests ways in which NK cells could be modified to improve their response to a range of diseases.

Results of their in vitro study, published in Leukemia, could one day provide a less toxic and more effective way to battle this cancer in children.
