iCMLf Prize medal 1 KopieApril 2023 - The iCMLf Prize honours people who have done outstanding work improving CML management under resource-constraint conditions in low and middle-income countries. Each year, we receive many nominations from the CML community for this prize…

And it’s always difficult to make a choice...

This year the iCMLf prize was awarded to Professor Iryna Dyagil and Dr Kostyantyn Kotlyarchuk, two Ukrainian hematologists in recognition of their work for people with CML under the challenging conditions of war and disruption.

In addition, there were also 11 physicians and patient advocates from ten different countries who were nominated for their dedication and life changing work for people with CML.

Today we are taking the opportunity to acknowledge all of the nominees and to thank them for their work to help people with CML in low and middle-income countries – through their research, their clinical practice and through their advocacy.

With the mission to improve outcomes for people with CML globally, a core part of the role of the iCMLf is to ensure best practice treatment for people with CML around the world. Since 2010 our programs throughout low- and middle-income countries have expanded access to CML education, networks, and discussions - all of which have improved the way CML is managed. In 2023 we are delighted to announce a new program – iCMLf Regional Discussions on CML.

March 2023 - The iCMLf is delighted to announce that Professor Jerry Radich, Director of the Radich Laboratory and the Molecular Oncology Laboratory at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center in Seattle (USA), is the winner of the 2023 Rowley Prize. The iCMLf Rowley Prize is awarded to celebrate people who have made outstanding lifetime contributions to the understanding of the biology of CML.

“I am honored and humbled by receiving the Rowley Prize. To be included in the company of past winners, under the name of the miraculous Janet Rowley, strains my belief and comprehension. I cannot adequately enough thank those who have given me this award, and those in my lab who have actually done the work.” (Professor Jerry Radich)
