LOS ANGELES, Jan. 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- IMBCR's "Cure Myeloma Project" is the nation's foremost effort to find a cure for multiple myeloma, a blood cancer that resides in bone marrow. Led by premier scientists in the world of myeloma research, James R. Berenson, M.D., Haiming Chen, M.D., Ph.D. and Zhi-Wei Li, Ph.D., this multi-phase research project's overall goal is to specifically target myeloma cells while leaving surrounding healthy cells untouched.

Over the past five years, researchers and scientists at IMBCR have been responsible for creating many of the novel therapeutics currently used to extend the quality of life and lifespan of myeloma patients throughout the world.
