November 2018 - The Foundation is celebrating its 10th anniversary next year. This also marks the tenth anniversary of our tradition to recognise and reward 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. It all started with the first iCMLf Rowley Prize awarded to Professor Brian Druker in 2009. This was followed by the introduction of the iCMLf Goldman Prize in 2014 and the iCMLf Prize in 2015.
We will continue this tradition next year. You are now welcome to nominate a colleague, or mentor for one of the 2019 prizes. Who would you like to see awarded the iCMLf prizes next year?
