The National Cancer Institute (NCI) announced a collaboration with the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation(MMRF) to incorporate MMRF's wealth of genomic and clinical data about the disease into the NCI Genomic Data Commons (GDC), a publicly available database that promotes the sharing of genomic and clinical data among researchers and facilitates precision medicine in oncology. The MMRF, located in Norwalk, Connecticut, is the first nonprofit organization to donate information to the GDC, which will include data on more than 30,000 patients who have many other types of cancers by the end of the year. NCI is part of the National Institutes of Health.
