GoldmanPrize medal RGB reducDecember 2020 - In these challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever to direct all our efforts to provide the best possible care for patients with CML around the globe and to continue to work towards a cure for CML.

With this in mind, we continue with 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 globally.

Since the first iCMLf Rowley Prize was awarded to Professor Brian Druker in 2009, we have honoured 26 scientists and clinicians with the three specific iCMLf Prizes.

Who would you like to see awarded the iCMLf prizes next year?
