Large grants to USA, Canada, and international investigators in academic laboratories with innovative ideas for approaches that can fundamentally change the understanding, diagnosis, and/or treatment of one or more blood cancer(s). The goal of this program is to advance novel research strategies that may eventually lead to significant improvements in the clinical outcomes, including quality of life, of patients with hematological malignancies.

Grants will support initial exploration of untested but potentially transformative research ideas and treatment approaches. In order to receive such an award, applicants must succinctly describe the innovative idea/approach and a method for testing it within the one year grant period.

Upon completion of the one year period, awardees will be evaluated on the extent to which their concept has been substantiated by initial testing, and promising projects may be selected for extended funding.
