Grants to USA and Canada researchers with an MD, PhD, or equivalent degree for research related to lymphoma. Funding is intended to support advanced-fellow and postdoctoral researchers in clinic-based or laboratory research that is relevant to the diagnosis, treatment, or prevention of Hodgkin and/or non-Hodgkin lymphoma, including chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
Areas of research may include, but are not limited to, etiology, immunology, genetics, therapies and transplantation. Historically, successful applications in this program have focused on basic, translational, and epidemiological research. During the award period, the Grantee must spend a minimum of 80 percent of his/her time in research without major patient care, teaching, or administrative responsibilities except as such responsibilities relate directly to a pre-clinical or clinical lymphoma research project.
Applications will be reviewed by members of LRF's Scientific Advisory Board (SAB). Evaluation of applications will be based on, but not be limited to the following factors:
- Overall research proposal and its relevance and significance to lymphoma. The Foundation considers “lymphoma” to encompass all recognized lymphoma subtypes as well as chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL).
- Applicant’s prior research experience
- Applicant’s potential for research career in lymphoma
- Sponsor’s qualifications and record of success in training researchers
- Letters of support provided by senior faculty
- Assessment of program and facilities available
