We are international

This is an exciting time in myeloma research, with new agents and new approaches coming to light at an unprecedented pace. The International Myeloma Foundation has supported myeloma research since 1990 with our Junior and Senior Grant Awards, Bank On A Cure®, and also the very important work being done by the International Myeloma Working Group.

In 1994, the IMF established the Brian D. Novis Research Grant program to support investigators searching for the answers to better treatment, management, prevention, and, ultimately, a cure.

Clinical trials offer patient access to new therapies while helping to advance the state of the science. Click on 'clinical trials' in the menu on the left for a comprehensive listing of myeloma treatments in clinical trial. Use the Myeloma Matrix to see a listing of myeloma drugs all the way from pre-clinical to FDA approved.
