The mission of the IMWG is to conduct basic, clinical and translational research in a collaborative manner to improve outcomes in myeloma, and to provide scientifically valid and critically appraised consensus opinions on the diagnosis and treatment of myeloma and related disorders.

In further pursuit of this mission, IMWG holds an annual summit to identify, support, and implement the most promising research to prevent onset of active disease, improve treatment, and find a cure for myeloma.

“Myeloma is extraordinarily complex, and no one person can have a full understanding of the ever-growing body of knowledge. By pooling resources, databases, and samples we can achieve far more than we can do alone.”

— Dr. Vincent Rajkumar, IMWG member
