I received my monthly Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) Newsletter in the mail today. Coincidentally, the featured front page article in the MMRF’s publication is about their Genomics Initiative. How strange to get this the day after I posted an article about Bank On A Cure–a genome identification program under the talented and experienced leadership of Dr. Brian Van Ness–which is partially funded by the International Myeloma Foundation.

Wow! Sounds like we are making progress! I hope these researchers can find real world applications for all of the date they are collecting. And I also hope the two projects are communicating with each other and stressing different, equally as important aspects of genetics in myeloma. Let’s explore more about this important research tomorrow.
Feel good and keep smiling! Pat
