17th International
Ultmann Chicago Lymphoma Symposium

Dr. John Ultmann

The International Ultmann Chicago Lymphoma Symposium (IUCLS) is an annual conference dedicated solely to the science and clinical care of lymphoma. It has been organized to honor the achievements of Dr. John Ultmann, a pioneer in the treatment of lymphoma, who devoted his life to the understanding of this disease. He was particularly known for his work on the staging of Hodgkin lymphoma and the utility of staging as a guide
for treatment.

We are fortunate to have a multitude of the world’s experts in lymphoma speak each year at the conference. The audience is comprised of regional practicing oncologists, advanced nurse practitioners and physician assistants, residents, fellows, and the Chicago academic community that includes five academic centers.

This is a certified continuing medical education (CME) activity that focuses on the biologic, diagnostic, and therapeutic aspects of Hodgkin lymphoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The format of the meeting includes a combination of expert presentations, interactive case discussions, poster/abstract presentations, and an opportunity for question-and-answer debates. The IUCLS is a two-day meeting held Friday afternoon and Saturday morning and early afternoon at the InterContinential Chicago Magnificent Mile. Friday afternoon concentrates on the scientific and translational aspects of lymphoma, while Saturday has a clinical focus.

Target Audience

The symposium has been designed for medical hematologists/oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, surgical oncologists, fellows-in-training, oncology nurses, and allied health professionals committed to the diagnosis and treatment
of lymphoma.
