The Lymphoma Research Foundation remains dedicated to finding a cure for lymphoma by supporting the next generation of lymphoma researchers.
To that end, the foundation is inviting applications for its Lymphoma Scientific Research Mentoring Program. The education and mentoring program seeks to enhance the ability of LRF Scholars to successfully design and administer research studies and apply for grants that support their lymphoma research. The program has two tracks: a Clinical Track, for clinical fellows and junior faculty with a focus in clinical research in the field of lymphoma, including epidemiology; and a Laboratory/Translational Track, for postdoctoral fellows, clinical fellows, and instructors with an interest in bench, translational, pathology, and/or statistical research focused on lymphoma.
LRF Scholars attend an initial LSRMP workshop where they convene a faculty of experts in lymphoma research who share their experience and knowledge with the Scholars as a group and in small breakout groups. The workshop will take place March 8-12, 2021, in Scottsdale, Arizona. Annual grants in the amount of $5,000 will be provided over two years ($10,000 total), to cover educational support such as tuition, registration fees, and travel for courses and meetings that are integral to a Scholar’s career development plan, as well as supplies (such as computer hardware or software) or research project expenses that can aid in his/her professional development and/or project completion.
To be eligible, applicants in the clinical track must a junior faculty member with an MD or equivalent degree in their first four years of a faculty position or a trainee who is at least in the second year of one of the following ACGME-accredited sub-specialty fellowship programs: Hematology/Oncology, Hematology, Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Pediatric Hematology/Oncology, or Hematopathology. Applicants should not be more than four years beyond completion of their fellowship or more than twelve years beyond completion of their MD or equivalent degree. Applicants in the laboratory/translational track must be either a postdoctoral fellow with no more than seven years as a postdoctoral fellow, a junior faculty member (MD, PhD, or equivalent) in their first four years at the instructor level, or a clinical fellow who is at least in the second year of an appropriate ACGME-accredited sub-specialty fellowship program (Hematology/Oncology, Hematology, Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Pediatric Hematology/Oncology, or Hematopathology). MD instructor applicants should not be more than four years beyond completion of their fellowship or more than twelve years beyond completion of their MD or equivalent degree. PhD instructor applicants should not be more than twelve years beyond completion of their PhD or equivalent degree.
