Welcome to the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation

The mission of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) is to accelerate next generation multiple myeloma treatments to extend patients’ lives in pursuit of a cure. With its unique end-to-end system in precision medicine, the MMRF is committed to high-quality data generation and open access to that data to drive new insights to clinical trials to optimize care for all patients.
