About the Multiple Myeloma Research Consortium

The Multiple Myeloma Research Consortium (MMRC) has been charged with unifying the collaboration and integration of academia and industry, focusing on developing the most avant-garde, progressive, and promising treatments for people living with multiple myeloma. Founded in 2004, the MMRC was the only program willing to explore a new approach, bringing together leading members of academic centers to solely concentrate on Phase I and Phase II clinical trials. Today, the MMRC has 22 member Institutions that are fully integrated and driven by highly defined metrics mandating accountability and strongly promoting team science.

The MMRC steering committee

The MMRC’s research efforts are selected and overseen by a dynamic team of experts in the field of multiple myeloma, including representation from world-renowned MMRC Member Institutions, as well as key leadership from the MMRF. This multidisciplinary team, with expertise in the fields of multiple myeloma research, clinical care, and executive leadership, provides both strategic direction and scientific oversight to the Consortium.
