Lymphoma Research Foundation Accepting Applications for Career Development Award

The Lymphoma Research Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for lymphoma through an aggressively funded research program and by supporting the next generation of lymphoma researchers. In addition, the foundation provides education for people with lymphoma, as well as their loved ones and caregivers, including comprehensive disease guides and fact sheets, in-person conferences, and online resources.

To advance this mission, the foundation is accepting applications for its LRF Clinical Investigator Career Development Award program, which is designed to support physician-investigators at the level of advanced fellow or junior faculty member who will contribute to the development of 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.

The grant provides a total of $225,000 to grantees over three years, including salary support in the amount of $70,000 per year.

To be eligible, applicants must be an investigator with no more than five years of experience beyond completion of their fellowship or postdoctoral training (the five-year limit may be non-sequential in cases of pregnancy or illness).

See the Lymphoma Research Foundation website for a complete program overview, a list of research objectives and evaluative factors, detailed eligibility criteria, and application instructions.
