In light of the continuing COVID-19 related challenges, the 22nd Annual John Goldman Conference on Chronic Myeloid Leukemia: Biology and Therapy was held as a virtual E-Conference from October 1-4, 2020.
577 participants from 57 countries attended the virtual meeting to follow the scientific program of high transversal interest to the International CML scientific community.

‘The virtual event was a great opportunity to welcome an even larger CML community this year to benefit from the outstanding scientific program and to continue interacting with colleagues during this challenging period.’
(Professor Jorge Cortes, e-conference chairperson)

"Very much fun", "Great camaradie", "Wonderful spirit" - Such voices were heard many at this year's John Goldman Fun Run. In good old tradition, a group of about 40 participants started the day very early at 7 am on Sunday morning to participate in the Foundation’s annual charity Fun Run at the John Goldman Conference on CML.

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.
