Grants to USA and Canada early career investigators to support efforts related to lymphoma treatment and research. Funding is intended to support advanced-fellow and junior-faculty physician researchers who are involved in developing new lymphoma therapies and diagnostic tools. The goal of the program is to prepare physician investigators to design and administer clinical research studies in lymphoma and assume primary responsibilities for clinical research, protocol writing, Institutional Review Board (IRB) submission, and publication.
A Career Development Plan is required as part of the Grant Application. The proposed research plan should develop the necessary knowledge and clinical research skills relevant to the investigator’s career goals. The Grant is designed to provide physician investigators with support to spend 35-50 percent of their time implementing clinical research studies in lymphoma.
All projects must be focused on hypothesis-driven clinical research in lymphoma. The Foundation considers “lymphoma” to encompass all recognized lymphoma subtypes as well as chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). The project should be developed by the Applicant and should include at least the framework of a research protocol. Review of Applications will be based on, but not be limited to, the following factors. Each factor will be judged in reference to its relevance to clinical research in lymphoma:
- Applicant qualifications, relevant clinical research experience, and commitment to pursuing a career in lymphoma clinical research.
- Mentor(s)’s qualifications and record of success in training independent Clinical Investigators.
- Career Development Plan, which clearly leads to research independence.
- Innovation of proposed research strategy and objectives.
- Relevance and research impact to the future of lymphoma treatment.
- Research Implementation Plan.
- Availability of resources, such as facilities and patient study group, to support the project.
