Current Research Recipients

Current IWMF Research Projects

IWMF grant funding for research projects has helped to provide an understanding of the basic biology and genetics of WM. This research in turn has played a significant role in the development of treatments and treatment guidelines in current use, as well as potential new drugs still in the pipeline. The goal of our research program is to improve quality of life for WM patients and, ultimately, discover a cure.

The Foundation has a rigorous process in place for all research grant proposals, which includes review by an independent committee composed of selected members of the IWMF Scientific Advisory Committee and other experts in the field. The awarding of research grants is ultimately subject to IWMF Board of Trustees approval. Researchers who receive grant awards must submit periodic progress reports, including a layman’s summary, to the volunteer IWMF Research Committee for review and comment.
