Multiple Myeloma Overview

  • The Jerome Lipper Multiple Myeloma Center and LeBow Institute for Myeloma Therapeutics at Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women's Cancer Center (DF/BWCC) provides comprehensive care and promising new therapies to people with multiple myeloma. We are a highly specialized center focusing exclusively on multiple myeloma diagnostics, treatment planning, therapy, and research.

    Our dedicated team of laboratory and clinical-based investigators and physicians have changed the fundamental understanding of the mechanics of this disease, leading to effective new treatments.
