The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (mmrf) supports investigators and scientific projects through a number of Research grants. The goal of this initiative is to accelerate The development of therapeutic approaches for Myeloma through our unique end-to-end model that supports efforts in basic science, or translation 2017 The mmrf awarded multi-year grants for three new programs. In data analytics & analysis, mmrf awarded $1 million to investigators for our answer fund, which will leverage The landmark mmrf commpass study to identify The next generation of therapeutic targets and/or pathways or biomarkers for high-risk Multiple Myeloma (mm) patients. In immunotherapy, $7 million was awarded to create The immune networks of excellence. These multicenter, and multinational, Research partnerships of world-class scientists and clinicians will accelerate Research into The role of The patient immune system in Myeloma biology and disease progression, and characterize The changes in The immune system associated with The patient's ...

The mmrf longitudinal study (commpass) commenced in 2011 and has been extended through 2023.

This is an observational study, rather than an interventional one with experimental drugs being tested. Biospecimens (like blood and bone marrow samples) are collected from The patients periodically over The course of their treatment along with correlating clinical data. The standard of care (i.e., drugs and treatment) for each patient is determined by such patient's personal physician. The tissue samples collected are placed in a biobank. An unrelated, third party, not-for-profit biomedical Research institute then performs laboratory tests on a portion of each of The samples resulting in genomic data about each patient. Our goal is to build ...
