GoldmanPrize medal RGB reducDecember 2019 - Great progress has been made for patients with CML in recent years, but there are still many challenges to meet. Scientists and clinicians around the world continue to work hard to drive research in CML and to find a cure for CML.

We continue with our tradition to recognise and reward these personal contributions and outstanding achievements to our understanding of the biology of CML and to improving the management of patients with CML around the world.

Since the first iCMLf Rowley Prize was awarded to Professor Brian Druker in 2009, we have honoured 23 well-deserved award winners with the three specific iCMLf Prizes.

Who will be next? You are now welcome to nominate a colleague, or mentor for one of the 2020 prizes.

It was incredibly hard – both physically and mentally – and pushed us to our limits and beyond. But we were a strong team and had great support. We made it to the mountain, climbed and made it safely back home again.

Even more important: to date we have raised over $300,000 for the work of the Foundation.
