The RUNX1 Research Program is a non-profit organization committed to finding a cure for RUNX1 FPD/AML and to support patients in the RUNX1 community by providing a forum in which to help connect, inform and educate patients on the disorder. In addition to providing grants for relevant research projects, the program hopes to build public awareness, educating both patients and healthcare providers on the latest research regarding the disorder. The program was created by The Babich Family Foundation, a foundation dedicated to advancing areas of research of particular importance to families affected by RUNX1 FPD/AML.
We have partnered with the renowned childhood cancer foundation, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF), to raise awareness and accelerate research. ALSF is committed to creating opportunities for new and innovative research into treatments and cures for childhood cancers. The Babich Family Foundation/RUNX1 Research Program is also partnering with The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) to launch a competitive grant to advance the understanding and treatment therapies of familial RUNX1 mutations leading to AML.
