IMF Funded Research

IMFThe late Brian D. Novis was the co-founder of the International Myeloma Foundation (IMF). In his memory, the IMF has established annual grants to promote research into better treatments, management, prevention and a cure. These grants are made possible through donations from private individuals and are awarded annually to doctors and researchers doing work in the field of myeloma. The IMF's Brian D. Novis Research Grants are awarded in the fall, with funding beginning in January of the following year.

These awards go to doctors/researchers doing work in the field of multiple myeloma and related disorders including smoldering myeloma, MGUS (monoclonal gammopathy of undermined significance), as well as immunoglobulin derived amyloidosis. Second year of funding is available to recipients.
