Edward P. Evans CENTERS FOR MDS
Edward P. Evans Centers for Myelodysplastic Syndromes…
The Edward P. Evans Centers for Myelodysplastic Syndromes were envisioned as way to further enhance research and patient care at renowned institutions that were already committed to the study and treatment of MDS. In the near term, the Foundation has partnered with these organizations to support an institutional research program while investing in the future development of new clinicians and investigators through the establishment of an endowed faculty position in MDS and a dedicated fellowship program. Our first two centers were created in 2019 and the Foundation currently plans to consider new centers in 2021.
