iMig is an independent international group of scientists and clinicians working to understand, prevent and cure mesothelioma. We invite membership to strengthen our international voice and to improve the scientific exchange and knowledge about this malignancy.
Membership is really about communication and participation. Members will have access to all features of the iMig website and opportunities to contribute content there. Via email, members will receive notices of updates to the website of interest such as those involving upcoming meetings, funding or career opportunities, new presentations and research breakthroughs. Although no membership dues are requested at this time, members are asked to participate in iMig, as by contributing to the website and/or participating in the biannual international meetings.
Finally, members help iMig by being part of our international community and showing their interest in understanding and ultimately preventing and defeating mesothelioma.
J. Christopher Wagner was a leader in the field of mesothelioma who made major contributions to the understanding of mesothelioma, its cause and the goals for prevention. By his clinical observations and animal studies, he was the first to establish that mesothelioma was caused by asbestos. Inspired by this example, the International Mesothelioma Interest Group presents the Wagner Medal every two years to an individual who has made major original contributions to the understanding of mesothelioma, either in basic or applied research. It is the highest honor presented by the International Mesothelioma Interest Group to a leader in the field. More on Dr. Wagner
