What should physicians and researchers expect from a professional membership? At the very least, we hope for a venue for peer interaction, opportunities for career development, and a way to maintain quality standards and currency within our chosen fields. Several organizations exist for those of us in hemostasis and thrombosis, including the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH), the American Society of Hematology (ASH), the National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF), the American Society of Pediatric Hematology- Oncology (ASPHO), and the Hemophilia & Thrombosis Research Society (HTRS), which quietly marked over 16 years of service to its members and the medical community in 2008.

What Is the Hemophilia & Thrombosis Research Society?
HTRS began as the Hemophilia Research Society of North America. After months of effort by several main founders—including Dr Robert R Montgomery, the Society’s first President, and Dr Joan Cox Gill, who remains our Treasurer—the Society was formally established in 1992 as a tax-exempt, non-profit research society in the State of Wisconsin. In our first newsletter, published in September 1994, then President Keith Hoots called for “inspiration, participation, and collaboration,” which remain the root tenets of the society. In the early 1990s, our mission was two-fold: to foster collaboration among North American clinicians and researchers, and to promote the mentoring of junior faculty in hemostasis. By 2003, it was clear that we needed to include thrombotic as well as bleeding disorders in our scope of work. The charter was duly amended, and ‘thrombosis’ became integral to both our name and our mission.
