The tasks are subject to change depending on needs of the organisation and the projects.
LeukaNET e.V. is a non-profit association established in Munich, Germany, in 2003. Its roots and main activities are running the patient-run, independent virtual patient community leukaemie-online.de for leukaemia patients and their families in German-speaking countries. Its goals are to support patients and their carers by providing background information and news about research, treatment and care as well as to run and moderate discussion forum, social media channels, online seminars and patient meetings.
With its mission to strengthen patient-centric clinical research and collaboration of the patient community with researchers, LeukaNET e.V. collaborates very closely with patient organisations and research organisations all across the world. It is a consortium member and work package leader of the European research projects IMI HARMONY and IMI HARMONY-PLUS.
The Big Data For Better Outcomes Programme is an umbrella programme of the Innovative Medicines Initiative 2 (IMI2). IMI2 is a collaboration between the European Union and The European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA) and is the world’s largest public-private partnership (PPP) in the life sciences which funds more than 140 EU projects.
The HARMONY Alliance, consisting of the EU-funded IMI projects HARMONY (2017-2022) and the HARMONY-PLUS (2020-2023), helps improve the prognosis and outcome of patients with hematological cancers, driven by knowledge derived from the combination and analysis of complex data. Therefore, a core part of HARMONY is its Patient Cluster, which is currently made up of 7 pan-European patient organizations. Each of these organizations represents the 7 blood cancers HARMONY is researching. The HARMONY Patient Cluster plays an important role in designing research projects to make sure they reflect the patient view. The patient cluster is currently being extended.
