About us

The primary mission of the MPN Research Foundation is to stimulate original research in pursuit of new treatments -- and eventually a cure -- for polycythemia vera (PV), essential thrombocythemia (ET) and myelofibrosis (MF), known collectively as myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN).

Founded by patients, for patients, terms on every research grant are negotiated to maximize the dollars invested in actual research that promises to deliver better treatments and eventually a cure for patients living with PV, ET and MF. The Foundation's esteemed Scientific Advisory Board utilizes a rigorous selection process to ensure donations are allocated to the most innovative research projects. The scientific advisory board includes highly regarded physicians from Scripps, University of Utah, BC Cancer Research Center and Weill Cornell.

To date, the Foundation has awarded over eight million dollars for MPN research. While we recognize the value in education and advocacy for patients, our primary focus remains on identifying and funding the highest quality research that will positively impact the lives of PV, ET and MF patients everywhere.
