European LeukemiaNet (ELN) Foundation

The ELN Foundation is a foundation of private law. Its goal is to support the European LeukemiaNet (ELN), a publicly funded research network of excellence, in all its efforts to strengthen and develop scientific and technological excellence in research and therapy of leukaemia (CML, AML, ALL, CLL, MDS and CMPD) by integration of the leading national leukaemia networks and their interdisciplinary partner groups in Europe. The strength of ELN is cooperative research and the development of international management recommendations in the field of leukemias.
