19th Annual John Goldman Conference on CML: Biology and Therapy

John Goldman Conference EntranceFrom 12-15 October 2017 more than 439 clinicians and scientists from 43 different countries attended the annual John Goldman Conference on CML in Estoril.

“The fact that this meeting takes place for the 19th time this year tells a lot about the passion of the CML scientific community to constantly improving the management of patients with CML and to better understanding the biology of CML”, said Jorge Cortes during the opening ceremony.

As in previous years the scientific sessions focused on various aspects related to the biology and management of CML including; signal transduction pathways involved in CML, possible mechanisms of genomic instability, leukemia stem cells and it's relationship to disease kinetics, challenges of monitoring individual patients with hematologic, cytogenetic and molecular methods, role of allogeneic stem cell transplantation in the management of CML, possible role of different immunotherapeutic approaches in CML, treatment-free survival as an endpoint in CML management and patient reported outcomes and their role in the management of CML patients.

You can view a summary of the scientific program from the perspective of the meeting chairman,Professor Jorge Cortes here.

2017 ‘John Goldman Fun Run’ raised over $3,400 to support the training of young physicians from the emerging regionsFun Run Group Picture Kopie

Early in the morning at 7am, before the Sunday sessions and just a few hours before the Lisbon marathon passed by, participants of the 19th John Goldman Conference on CML – all dressed up in green ‘John Goldman Fun Run’ T-Shirts – started to run along the beautiful Estoril promenade. Despite the early hour everyone had a big smile in their faces enjoying the sea view and the sunrise.

Again this year, all this was for a good cause: by purchasing a bright green ‘iCMLf John Goldman Fund’ running T-Shirt participants supported the training of young physicians from the emerging regions.

Biology and Therapy

18th John Goldman Conference

From 15-18 September 2016 more than 370 clinicians and scientists from 33 different countries gathered at the Annual John Goldman Conference on CML in Houston to present the newest and often unpublished data related to the biology and clinical management of CML. ‘John Goldman started this conference as a very small meeting a few years ago that has now evolved into one of the most important meetings for scientists and clinicians interested in CML who take each year a lot of new ideas and inspiration from this meeting', said Jorge Cortes during the opening session. Professor Jorge chaired the meeting together with Professor Tessa Holyoake and Professor Tim Hughes.

2016 ‘John Goldman Fun Run’ raised over $1,600 to support the management of CML in the emerging regions

It has now become a real tradition at the annual John Goldman Conference on CML. Early Sunday morning at 7 amFun Run DSC02963 Kopie 2 participants pack their running shoes for the 5k ‘John Goldman Fun Run’ to support the work of the International CML Foundation.
This year 35 meeting participants of the 18th John Goldman Conference on CML in Houston had an early start to the day before the Sunday morning sessions, running a 5km loop round through Houston’s beautiful Memorial Park. Even this early in the morning it was already pretty hot and humid. Whether for recreation, or sporting excellence, it was great fun running together with colleagues and friends all while supporting the work of the Foundation.
