Presenting the Therapy Acceleration Program

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society was founded in 1949 by Rudolph and Antoinette de Villiers, who had recently lost their 16 year old son to leukemia. Since then, LLS has been driven by the de Villiers nearly boundless belief that leukemia and other blood cancers could be cured. From its inception, LLS been helping to shape the ever-shifting paradigm of cancer research and drug discovery. More recently, we have been laser-focused on driving research in areas of unmet medical need, while helping to bridge the gap from academic discovery to drug development.

We launched our Therapy Acceleration Program (TAP) in 2007, as a strategic initiative to forge partnerships with academic research institutions, and with biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies, to speed the development of blood cancer therapies and bring help and hope to patients as quickly as possible.

To showcase TAP and its critical role in finding treatments and cures for blood cancers, we produced a series of films featuring a cast of key LLS research staff and executives. In a series of vignettes, we hear from the TAP team as they explain how LLS is helping companies and research institutions with novel compounds, biologics or diagnostic devices overcome bottlenecks and advance these projects through the drug development pipeline.

As always, our goal is to bring us closer to cures, today.
