Research Results

Part of the IWMF's mission is to fund basic science research related to Waldenstrom's macrogloblinemia, it's symptoms, and treatments.  The generosity of our donors and members makes it possible for us to fund research that otherwise would NOT take place for this rare disease.

 

Among the groundbreaking successes and results that have resulted from IWMF-funded research are;
