Young Investigator Grants
A cornerstone of LRF's grants portfolio, the Young Investigator Grants have consisted of the Clinical Research Career Development Award and Postdoctoral Fellowship grants since 2002. Beginning with the 2014 cycle, the Foundation added the LRF Clinical Research Mentoring Program (LCRMP), which provides hands on career development and networking opportunities to early career scientists.
A part of LRF's grant portfolio since 1992, Fellowships support investigators who have completed two years of their institutional fellowship and no more than two years of their first faculty position. Grantees must spend at least 80 percent of their time in research; their two year award provides salary support, professional development, and research expenses. Past awardees have completed research projects in both the clinic and laboratory in a variety of lymphoma subtypes, including investigations into the biology of lymphoma, pathways for possible novel targeted agents, and patient quality of life.
Clinical Investigator Career Development Awards
Established in 2002, the CDA supports clinical researchers within five years of the completion of their postdoctoral training. Supported by an institutional mentor, grantees must spend at least 35 percent of their time in independent clinical research; their three-year grant provides salary support, professional development, and research expenses. Past awardees have completed clinical research projects in a variety of lymphoma subtypes.
The LCRMP offers mentoring and education to hematology/oncology fellows and junior faculty dedicated to clinical research in the field of non-Hodgkin and Hodgkin lymphoma. Program participants, called LRF Scholars, attend and participate in a week long intensive introductory workshop and follow-up programming intended to enhance the ability of the LRF Scholars to successfully design and administer clinical research studies and successfully apply for future grant funding.
Applicants must be citizens or permanent residents of the US or Canada.
