The Latin American Cooperative Group of Haemostasis and Thrombosis (CLAHT Group) announces the establishment of the International Celina Altman Award. The award was developed to honor Celina Altman, who worked tirelessly in the consolidation of CLAHT and the development of knowledge and research in the field of hemostasis and thrombosis.
The award is given to the best original scientific paper presented at each CLAHT Group Congress on the topic of clinical aspects and basic research in the area of hemostasis and thrombosis. The work must be completed in Latin America by an author whose research activity is conducted primarily in Latin America and in which at least one of the authors is a member of CLAHT Group. The works must be unpublished and written in Spanish, Portuguese or English.
Under the financial sponsorship of the Altman family, represented by Dr. Raul Altman and/or his relatives, it will be awarded every two years at the International Congress of CLAHT Group, beginning in 2017 in the Dominican Republic.
