The European Calcified Tissue Society (ECTS) challenged the attendees of its 2018 conference to create a Science Sketch to explain their project, and we are featuring the top 3 videos here! In this video, learn about the connection between bones, blood cell production (hematopoiesis), and a group of blood disorders called myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS). This video was created by Heike Weidner, a PhD student in the MDS Center at the University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus Dresden.
