How To Donate

Join The Fight Against Blood Cancers!

Donate to the Blood Cancer Research Fund

The BCRF continues to make numerous contributions to blood cancer research and cancer in general:

    • Discovery of the how Zap-70, an intracellular protein, that can be used as a useful prognostic factor in determining the aggressiveness of CLL.
    • The first laboratory to understand the microenvironment of leukemic cells and how the “nurse-like” cells support them.
    • Leadership of the national consortium of 7 prestigious universities studying the causes and treatment of CLL. Member scientists are among the most prominent investigators in the field.
    • Conducted the first-in-human gene therapy trials
    • Intra-Nodal Gene therapy trials (expanding to multi-site injections)
    • Key member of the researchers involved in familial cancer research
    • Principal investigators of a new breakthrough research effort using nanotechnology in the early diagnosis and treatment of early stage cancers.

New Computer Program Can Help Uncover Hidden Genomic Alterations that Drive Cancers

Cancer is rarely the result of a single mutation in a single gene. Rather, tumors arise from the complex interplay between any number of mutually exclusive abnormal changes in the genome, the combinations of which can be unique to each individual patient. To better characterize the functional context of genomic variations in cancer, researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine and the Broad Institute developed a new computer algorithm they call REVEALER.
