Multiple myeloma is a rare blood cancer of malignant cells found in the bone marrow.  Multiple myeloma (active) is the most common type plasma cell cancer. However, the following are other forms of myeloma or myeloma-related conditions:

  • Monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS)
  • Asymptomatic (smoldering/indolent) myeloma
  • solitary plasmacytoma of the bone
  • Extramedullary plasmacytoma
  • Light chain myeloma
  • Non-secretory myeloma
  • Osteosclerotic myeloma (POEMS syndrome)
  • Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia
  • Light chain amyloidosis
  • Plasma cell leukemia

Dr. James R. Berenson formed IMBCR in 2003 to offer scientists the opportunity to work in an unencumbered environment to explore new directions in a state of the art, self-contained laboratory facility.

Dr. Berenson leads a team of dedicated scientists with extensive expertise in cancer research, particularly in the fields of metastatic cancer, cancer genetics, hematology, cellular interactions with the environment, and animal models of myeloma and other bone cancers.

IMBCR’s multiple myeloma related research is far-reaching and benefits all cancers where bone metastasis is a threat, particularly breast cancer, lung cancer, and prostate cancer as well as other types of bone marrow and blood cancer such as lymphoma and leukemia.

With your help in fundraising, IMBCR can accelerate the advancement of scientific research and ultimately help grant millions of people freedom from the symptoms of myeloma and bone cancer.
