WM-NET Update – April 2024

Thanks to the incredible generosity of our IWMF donor community, we are happy to announce that we met the $100,000 Hamberg Family WM-NET Challenge in just 10 days!

Over 30 physicians, WM researchers, pharma industry representatives and IWMF leaders met in New York City on April 18 – 19 to continue their work to expand cutting edge clinical trials to the WM community throughout the US. “Creating a U.S. based network of WM clinicians and researchers will facilitate a more rapid translation of trial and study results into practice, as well as bring clinical trials closer to patients,” said Dana-Farber’s Jorge Castillo, MD, who serves as faculty director of the network’s steering committee. “We are thrilled that IWMF is partnering with us to ensure we meet our ambitious goals. We’re hopeful this network will help optimize clinical trial design and foster academic discussion for the benefit of all patients facing this chronic disease.”

IWMF’s financial support of the WM-NET clinical trials initiative is vital in keeping this moving forward.

Thank you again to the Hamberg Family for their very generous match gift and thank you to everyone for your support!
