Help us improve treatments and patient outcomes for ROS1+ cancer!

Join me in supporting real change. The ROS1ders are raising money to support patient-partnered research into our own disease, and we could use your help. Our ongoing projects in need of support include The ROS1 Cancer Model project, the ROS1 Real World Data project, and ROS1+ cancer seed grants.

The ROS1 Cancer Model Project enables people who have ROS1+ cancer to donate live cancer cells to make models to accelerate research. Through our efforts since 2017, we have helped to double the number of available cell lines and those cell lines have been shared with research institutions in the U.S., Canada, and Europe.

In 2023 we funded two $75,000 seed grants for ROS1+ cancer research projects:

  1. Lynn Heasley, PhD, and Raphael Nemenoff, PhD, University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus — Novel murine ROS1+ cancer models for next-generation therapeutics
    This project aims to develop the first genetically engineered mouse that has ROS1+ cancer AND an intact immune system. These mice will enable study of the immune microenvironment surrounding the cancer as well as new treatment options.
  2. Jürgen Wolf, MD, University Hospital Cologne (Universitätsklinikum Köln) – An international consortium to generate high-quality real-world evidence for the optimization of treatment strategies in ROS1-positive lung cancer
    This project builds on the existing program in Germany for gathering cancer patient data and samples and expands it to a consortium of countries within the European Union. It’s hard to gather enough data on a rare cancer like ROS1+ to determine best treatment practices. The database aims to generate evidence that can guide the treatment of patients and improve outcomes.

Our goal for 2024 is to be able to fund three more $75,000 seed grants. With your help, we're so excited to move forward and help those with ROS1+ cancer improve outcomes! Visit our website to learn more about the ROS1ders patient-partnered research at The ROS1ders Global Initiative.

Just a small donation will go a long way to helping me meet my goal for The ROS1ders, Inc.
