iwMyeloma 2020

The International Workshop on Myeloma 2020 took place September 25–26th and highlighted recent updates in immune-based therapies, minimal residual disease (MRD), and the molecular basis of myeloma in the development of novel targets.

Some of the world’s leading clinical researchers in myeloma shared their perspectives on how to place this evolving understanding in a clinical context and thereby optimize clinical care.

The full series of presentations can be viewed on-demand below.

Day One

Day one of the meeting featured sessions on the genomics and epigenomics of multiple myeloma as well as novel targets currently under investigation.
