Myeloma Research Groups
John Theurer Cancer Center is a member of the Multiple Myeloma Research Consortium (MMRC), a unique research model dedicated to accelerating the development of innovative therapies for patients with multiple myeloma. At the core of this unique model is the MMRC Tissue Bank, the only resource that integrates myeloma tissue samples with corresponding genomic and clinical data to rapidly advance research efforts with the potential to improve myeloma care.
Using new genetic technologies, John Theurer Cancer Center researchers joined colleagues from 20 major North American research institutions to publish the first complete genomic portrait of multiple myeloma in the prestigious journal Nature. Building on these promising results, we enrolled patients in a follow-up study designed to uncover the molecular features and subtypes of multiple myeloma. This study will form the centerpiece of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation’s (MMRF) Personalized Medicine Initiative—CoMMpass—which aims to accelerate the translation of exciting research findings from the laboratory to the clinic, where they can help patients live longer.
