More than ever, there is an urgent need for a deeper understanding of the clinical, molecular and immune parameters involved in multiple myeloma disease initiation, progression and response to treatment. Such rich information, collected at the population level, is crucial to generate the evidence needed to ultimately make Precision Medicine a reality for all multiple myeloma patients. To this end the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) is launching the MMRF CureCloud Research Initiative, a Direct-to-Patient Research effort aimed at enrolling 5,000 individuals from whom comprehensive molecular and immune analyses will be generated from blood specimens and the resulting data aggregated with the correlating clinical information. Blood will be collected from all participants after electronic online consenting via a mailed blood kit designed for a mobile phlebotomy appointment. Through the consenting process, participants will also be authorizing linkage to their electronic medical records information. An important deliverable of the MMRF CureCloud Research Initiative is a curated dataset of integrated genomic, immune and correlating clinical data that will be made available to support scientific investigations through the MMRF CureCloud, a cloud-based platform with tools and capabilities for the seamless aggregation, integration and analysis of large collections of myeloma datasets. Finally, in order to fulfill the vision of the MMRF CureCloud Research Initiative to make Precision Medicine a reality for all myeloma patients, thoughtful strategies truly making participants active participants in the research will be employed.
