2nd Immune Effector Cell Therapies in Multiple Myeloma Workshop

2nd Immune Effector Cell Therapies in Multiple Myeloma Workshop

May 7 - 31, 2021 - Boston, MA

Building upon the success of the inaugural workshop held in April 2019, the International Myeloma Society is happy to host the 2nd Immune Effector Cell Therapies in Multiple Myeloma Workshop to discuss various immune-based therapies in myeloma including CART cell clinical data and promising preclinical leads, review the latest correlative analyses exploring predictors of response and resistance mechanisms, evaluate uniform practices in managing patients with CRS and other complications, and discuss next-generation cell therapy strategies, including “off-the-shelf” allogeneic and NK-cell based approaches. This year we are also including a session on cell-engaging bispecific antibody-based approaches.

Translational Research Grant

The International Myeloma Society and Paula and Rodger Riney Foundation are proud to announce a new initiative “IMS Translational Research Award”. We anticipate funding grants focused on translational research in the field of plasma cell dyscrasias. 

Waldenstrom Award

The Waldenström Award (WA) is given by the IMS at each International Myeloma Workshop (IMW) starting in 1989. This award is given to outstanding researchers in recognition to their contributions to the myeloma field.  The award is named for Professor Jan Waldenström, who was a pioneer in treating blood cancers.

Career Development Award

The International Myeloma Society is proud to announce a new initiative “IMS Career Development Award”. The IMS anticipates funding grants for young investigators focused on research in the field of plasma cell dyscrasias.

Why Become a Member

The International Myeloma Society is a professional, scientific, and medical society established to bring together clinical and experimental scientists involved in the study of myeloma. The purpose of this society is to promote research, education, clinical studies (including diagnosis and treatment), workshops, conferences, and symposia on all aspects of multiple myeloma worldwide. The IMS is a membership organization comprised of basic research scientists, and clinical investigators in the field along with physicians and other healthcare practitioners.
