Become a part of this team; join our efforts in saving lives and advancing medicine
Pat G'Sell, Dr. Murphy's clinical nurse has provided us with an important update in our ongoing clinical trial.
What We Do
Welcome to the home page for Cryptic Masons Medical Research Foundation, (CMMRF), and thank you for visiting us.
We invite you to join our efforts in supporting cutting edge discovery research targeted to develop novel therapeutics and diagnostics for patient care.
CMMRF supports the Indiana Center for Vascular Biology and Medicine, (ICVBM), located at the Indiana University School of Medicine and the Richard Roudebush Veteran's Administration Medical Center located at Indianapolis Indiana.
Because blood vessels are important in maintaining the health or repairing almost all tissues, practically all diseases turn out to have a vascular component connected to their origin or remediation. Diabetes, stroke, poor circulation, wound healing, and many other diseases share the common denominator of blood vessels. Centering our contributions to an organization that addresses so many different health concerns, both nationally and internationally, allows our supporters to share in the medical advancements, regardless of geography.
Through the basic and clinical research, conducted by ICVBM and supported by CMMRF, advancements are being made to discover cures for many of today's health problems, prevent major diseases, and finally to save lives. We have the opportunity to improve the human condition for those most dear to us and ourselves. We invite you to become a part of this team and join our partnership in discovery. Let's do something great together!

Keith March, M.D., Ph.D.
The Indiana Center for Vascular Biology and Medicine (ICVBM) is led by Keith March, MD, PhD, a physician, scientist and cardiologist. The ICVBM is committed to being a leader in basic as well as applied research in understanding vascular wellness and disease, and the development of leading-edge medical therapies to improve the care of patients with vascular problems. Because blood vessels are very important in maintaining the health of and repairing almost all tissues, nearly all diseases turn out to have a vascular component involved in their origin or in tissue repair. Centering our key research on the biology of cells that form blood vessels leads to knowledge that can readily translate from one disease to many others.

Dear loyal supporters,
In my 27 years of involvement with the Cryptic Masons Medical Research Foundation, my belief in the importance of medical research has never wavered. The critical research that is taking place at the Indiana Center for Vascular Biology and Medicine (ICVBM) is due, in great part, to the long-term commitment and generosity from our donors.
Important research continues to take place every day at the ICVBM. The first-ever phase 3 clinical trial is currently recruiting patients with peripheral artery disease, as well as several new trials expected to start this year. To learn more visit www.cmmrf.org for updates. Progress is happening and we want to continue to keep forging ahead to help better treat and cure diseases related to the vascular system.
This will be my last letter to you as the CMMRF Executive Secretary, as I will be stepping today. It has been an honor and privilege to serve in this capacity for the last 27 years. Please help me to make my last fundraising effort a success. Join with me in pledging your support.
Please accept our deep gratitude for all you have done and continue to do.
Fraternally and sincerely,
PMIGM, CMMRF Executive Secretary
