Funding Opportunity: Crowd Research Initiative Taking Proposals in Myeloma
The Myeloma Crowd Research Initiative is accepting research proposals for high-risk multiple myeloma until the end of February, through the Myeloma Crowd website. The Myeloma Crowd is a division of the CrowdCare Foundation.
The initiative combines myeloma specialists with educated “epatients” to select and fund promising research projects in myeloma. This is the first time a united group of patient activists have helped steer the direction of myeloma research.
The MCRI has selected high-risk myeloma including genetic features (del 17p13, 4;14, 14;16 and 14;20) and aggressive features in relapsed/refractory myeloma patients as its main area for research funding.
Proposals from selected applicants will be reviewed by both a Scientific Advisory Board and Patient Advisory Board who will select final projects for crowdfunding campaigns. Due to the nature and incidence of high-risk myeloma, collaborative proposals between facilities and investigators are welcome.
