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?


May 2016 - The iCMLf Diagnosis and Testing Program offers seeding grants to hematology institutions in emerging economic regions. The aim of the program is to facilitate the diagnosis, testing and long-term disease monitoring of CML patients in emerging economic regions where it is either limited, or not currently available.

Over 4 years the iCMLf have awarded 32 grants to enable CML diagnostics to be expanded and enhanced at a local level. This gives both physicians and patients the knowledge to make meaningful decisions on treatment. In 2016 the Foundation will offer 10 grants with funding of up to $10,000.

Applications will close on the 15th of July 2016. Expressions of interest are welcome to or read more for further information on how to apply.
