IMF Receives Grant from Goldman Philanthropic Foundation for Bank On A Cure®
06.20.06
Partnership for Cures [PFC], a charity that assists individuals, foundations, and corporations with strategic philanthropy in the field of medical research, has fostered a collaboration in which PFC donor Goldman Philanthropic Partnerships [GPP] has committed a $25,000 grant to IMF for its Bank On A Cure research project.

"George and Judy Goldman, founders of Goldman Philanthropic Partnerships, have long been supporters of the IMF and donors to innovative multiple myeloma research," said Dr. Bruce E. Bloom, PFC President and Chief Science Officer. "Judy was diagnosed with multiple myeloma back in 1990 and has dedicated her remission to finding a cure for others. George and Judy are thrilled to be able to support the work that Drs. Van Ness and Morgan and the rest of the IMF research team are doing to understand how genetic variations are associated with risk, disease progression, and individual responses to therapies." The grant award will be presented to Dr. Brian Van Ness on June 24, 2006 at Concert for Cures, a Chicago event hosted by PFC to kick off a campaign to help other donors and foundations like GPP fund ground-breaking research.
