The MRDR had a successful Blood 2023. We kicked things off with our Annual Breakfast Meeting, which was well attended with around 95 attendees representing hospitals, researchers, industry, Government and other collaborators. Attendees enjoyed an update on the Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) MRDR, as well as its sister registry, the Asia-Pacific (APAC) MRDR. In addition, attendees had the opportunity to learn about emerging projects using registry data. These were the: MY-PROMPT-2 Trial and EpiMAP disease modelling study. This was followed by a lively Q&A session.

The MRDR was also well represented in the conference program with four poster presentations that showed the breadth of use of registry data:

The Registry was also represented in the Monash University booth in the conference Exhibition Hall at breaks to promote the MRDR and attend to any queries. It was lovely to meet new (and familiar) faces!
