MF Challenge Proposals Due Today!

Today our small staff is buzzing about the MF Challenge proposals coming through our email. This is the second wave of our Myelofibrosis Challenge grant program, a joint effort with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. 

In 2012 we awarded $100,000 each for four different projects, the goal of which is to stop or reverse fibrosis. Progress reports on the first wave are due later this year, and we're hoping to find 4 more projects worthy of the funds to continue in 2013-14. We set up a microsite to keep patients, their friends & families up to date, where you can also sign up for alerts.
