Chairmen Welcome

Welcome to the
10th International Conference
on Thrombosis and Hemostasis Issues in Cancer (2021)

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

We are excited to invite you to the 10th ICTHIC Edition! 

Unfortunately, due the COVID-19 pandemics , we had to rethink and reformulate the organization of the 10th ICTHIC meeting.

Therefore, we will have the fist- ever ICTHIC Virtual Edition.

Frederick Rickles, after eighteen years of  priceless chairmanship and guidance, has decided to retire. However, he will surely continue to be part of the conference organization as Chariman Emeritus, and we will always be grateful to him for his precious work since ICTHIC’s beginning.

We look forward to see you at the first Virtual ICTHIC and feel confident that it will beat our expectation of a high scientific level Conference.

Stay tuned for more news and previews of the sessions by visiting the website of the meeting at

We look forward to seeing you in Spring 2021!
