IMS Young Investigator Award

Through the IMS Young Investigator Awards, the International Myeloma Society provides travel grants to young myeloma researchers to assist with expenses relating to their participation at the International Myeloma Society Annual Meeting. The IMS Executive Committee will decide, according to the scores of the abstracts and the quality of presentation, which investigators receive a travel grant.


Eligible applicants must be:

  • Age 35 years or younger
  • Registered at the IMS Annual Meeting
  • Have an Abstract selected for oral or poster presentation at International Myeloma Society Annual Meeting. The award winner must be the primary author on the submitted Abstract.
Application Evaluation

Each eligible application will be reviewed by the current Annual Meeting abstract reviewers. The best abstracts are then sent to members of the International Myeloma Society (IMS) Executive Committee.

Award Amount

The awardee will receive up to $2,000 US dollars to offset travel expenses. IMS is committed to providing travel support assistance to its members through society resources and through external grant support. Because external funding is not guaranteed, the extent of travel support available is unknown at this time.
