"We're at a point now we couldn’t have dreamed about 10 years ago. There are countless clinical trials testing all manner of interventions, not to mention the massive amount of publications and data that lay the groundwork for future research." - Andrew Schafer, MD, Weill Cornell Medical College, Scientific Advisory Board Chair for MPN Research Foundation

Our current active grants:

  • MPN Challenge grant program is an offshoot of the MF Challenge concept grant program started in 2012. In July we awarded ten projects $100,000 each for their proposals. This RFP was focused on five focus areas: Reducing the MPN Allelle Burden, Selective JAK2 Inhibition; Immunotherapy; CALR Mutation; and Fibrosis & the Bone Marrow Niche.

    The Myelofibrosis (MF) Challenge is a joint grant program between the MPN Research Foundation and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The goal of The MF Challenge is to discover the factors that induce fibrosis in bone marrow, and to identify opportunities to arrest and reverse this fibrosis. Worthy recipients are given 1 year and $100,000 to provide a proof of concept for a project with the potential for further funding. Click here to see who has been funded through the MF Challenge.
