About NASTH

History and Mission

The North American Society on Thrombosis and Hemostasis (NASTH) was founded in May of 2012 by a group of scientists and clinicians doing research in this field. The goal was to fill a perceived void by creating a regional professional society dedicated to advancement of hemostasis and thrombosis research, education and clinical care. Seed funding was made available from the International Society on Thrombosis and Hemostasis 2009 Congress' President's Fund. The Society was incorporated and IRS 501(c)3 designation was received by the end of 2012.

While the original intent was to plan a regional congress for NASTH constituents, it was decided that the best way to achieve this end would be to join a collaboration of societies organizing the Thrombosis and Hemostasis Summit of North America (THSNA).  NASTH continues as a member of THSNA and assists with organizing this biannual Summit.  www.thsna.org

NASTH also provides educational opportunities through a Mentored Research Fellowship opportunity for MD/PhD students, and the organization of smaller meetings and colloquiums.
