Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation launches CureCloud data hub for precision medicine

The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation announced this week the launch of a centralized data hub to help identify new treatment targets and thus accelerate the delivery of precision medicine.

The CureCloud will generate, aggregate and visualize massive amounts of genomic, immune and clinical data from patients with multiple myeloma, which is a highly heterogeneous disease and therefore requires more specialized treatment. The data will be shared with physicians, researchers and patients to enable the development and distribution of those treatments.

The data hub will include de-identified data from the MMRF, external data sources and the foundation's CoMMpass study, which identified 12 unique myeloma sub-types and produced the largest genomic dataset of any form of cancer. Additionally, in the fall, patients will be invited to upload their own data to the CureCloud patient registry to further expand its research and treatment capabilities.
