Research is determinant for advancing the medical field and lymphoma is no exception. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) is one of the major organizations focused on providing support to investigators to continue increasing understanding about the disease as well as improving its diagnosis and treatment. In order to do so, LLS attributes academic grants to support basic and translational leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma research. These are ten examples of LLS academic grants.
The career development program is meant for highly qualified investigators who demonstrated capacities for independent, sustained and original investigation in the field of hematologic malignancies. These grants are awarded at different stages of research careers in specific categories. To be eligible, investigators need to hold an independent faculty-level or equivalent position and holding substantial support for the research from a national agency. The grant is worth $110,000 per year for five years and applications will open soon.

“The SCOR program intends to bring together distinguished investigators from one or several institutions to develop a focused research center, foster new interactions and cooperation, and enhance interdisciplinary research among the participants to understand the causes of various hematological malignancies and ultimately develop effective treatments for cancer patients,” state the LLS. “The SCOR application process is opening soon.”
