Early Career Professional Testimonial

Caterina Casari, Ph.D. (France)
Early Career Committee Chair
Researcher at Inserm
Area of expertise: von Willebrand disease and other bleeding disorders
"Feeling part of a community is nice when there are people willing to share opinions, knowledge, perspectives and even doubts," Caterina says. "The ISTH community is approachable and is made of people with which you can personally interact. Congresses are definitely the first place to start new insightful relationships, especially in the early stages of our career. I think that getting involved is necessary but also rewarding because it facilitates new contacts."



Early Career Committee

The Early Career Committee (ECC) was formed as a task force in 2013 to represent the voice and needs of early career professionals in the field of thrombosis and hemostasis. In 2017, the task force officially became a Council Committee.

The ECC consists of a group of active early career ISTH members from worldwide origins. Their overall mission is to engage and represent early career professionals in the ISTH and to foster this community in the field of thrombosis and hemostasis. Get in touch with the ECC at
