Highlights from the iwCLL 2019 in Edinburgh

The 18th International Workshop on CLL (iwCLL) will take place in Auld Reekie - as Edinburgh used to be called by the Scots - from 20 to 23 September. Are you unable to attend this congress? No worries, MEDtalks will travel to this historic city to bring you the most important news about chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL).
