The Australian and New Zealand Myeloma and Related Diseases Registry attend the 15th International Myeloma Workshop in Rome

The Australian and New Zealand Myeloma and Related Diseases Registry (MRDR) forged valuable links with sister registries at the International Myeloma Workshop in Rome last month.

At this biannual workshop attended by over 1500 delegates, members of the MRDR steering committee and Research Fellow Dr Liz Moore met with representatives of the Austrian Registry, Dr Wolfgang Willenbacher and data manager Roman Weger.
They also met with delegates from the newly established Canadian Registry, Associate Professor Christopher Venner and Project manager, Esther Masih Khan as well as representatives from the well-established Korean Multiple Myeloma Working Group, Dr Kihyun Kim, Dr Sung Soo Yoon, Dr Jejung Lee and Dr Jae Hoon Lee.

All registry teams expressed interest in a proposed international research collaboration.

Dr Liz Moore also presented initial results from the MRDR in a poster which attracted interest from the Singapore Registry team amongst others and she was invited to attend the Asia Myeloma Network meeting, convened by the International Myeloma Foundation.

In addition, Chief investigator of the Myeloma and Related Diseases Registry, Professor Andrew Spencer, delivered three invited presentations at the International Workshop.

He is invited to present at a follow-up meeting in Seoul in November.
