Title: SSC 2014: Recognizing 60 Years of Impact on the Field
By David Lillicrap, SSC Chairman
The ISTH was founded in 1969 by the SSC, formerly known as the International Committee on Thrombosis and Haemostasis. The work of the SSC actually began in Basel, Switzerland, at the International Conference on Thrombosis and Embolism in 1954. The early Committee work laid the foundation that the Society is built upon, and while the ISTH has grown considerably in size and range of activities, the SSC remains a critical core component of our organization. The 19 subcommittees of the SSC continue to oversee scientific developments in a broad range of hemostasis and thrombosis subject areas, and the SSC provides guidance relating to standardization of activities in the clinic, diagnostic and research laboratory.
Today, the work of the SSC is more relevant than ever - both in the laboratory and clinical setting. In the clinic, the introduction of new anticoagulants and products for the treatment of inherited bleeding disorders has raised a number of important issues concerning laboratory monitoring that are now being addressed by our respective subcommittees. Similarly, in the research arena, the incorporation of new genomic and proteomic strategies and the application of animal models of disease to hemostasis and thrombosis discovery are now being encompassed by a range of SSC initiatives.
