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

Estimated Size of Grant:

The LRF Postdoctoral Fellowship provides a total of $105,000 to grantees over two years. Salary support is provided in the amount of $45,000 for the first year and $50,000 for the second year. Incidental funds of $5,000 per year may be budgeted for research supplies or professional development expenses such as tuition, registration fees, and travel for courses and meetings.

Term of Contract:

The grant period is two years. Funding will commence at the earliest on March 1, 2020.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

- Applicants must hold an MD, PhD, or equivalent degree. MD Applicants must have completed at least two years (24 months) of their fellowship work at the start of the award period. All applicants should not have completed more than five years (60 months) of their fellowship or postdoctoral work at the start of their award period. Individuals holding faculty positions prior to March 1, 2020 are not eligible to apply; awarded applicants may move into faculty positions during the award period.
- Applicants must be affiliated with a sponsoring institution in the U.S. or Canada for the duration of the LRF Grant and intend to pursue a career in lymphoma research. Citizenship is not required.
- Applicant must secure a Primary Sponsor at their home institution who will supervise the proposed research project. The Sponsor’s role is to assure (on behalf of the Institution) that the specific aims of the project are met and to present the Institution’s role in the development of the Applicant’s career. The Primary Sponsor may support only one applicant to the Fellowship program per grant cycle. Associate Sponsors (including at other institutions) are permitted but not required.
- Applications are encouraged from qualified individuals without regard to age, race, religion, sex, creed, national origin or any other characteristics protected by law.
- The LRF Grantee may not hold another competitively applied for fellowship and/or a grant that primarily supports Principal Investigator (PI) salary during the period of the LRF Grant, except if awarded as part of an NIH Institutional Training Grant (T32/K12 or equivalent). Supply and material costs for the clinical research project should be supported by another grant or from institutional funds. The percent of research time for the PI on all active grants should not add up to more than 100%. LRF must be informed as to the sources and the amounts of all extramural/non-institutional funding received by the Fellowship recipient during the term of the LRF Grant, and reserves the right to determine that the LRF Grant may not be held concurrent with other funding.
- A previous LRF Fellowship Grant recipient cannot apply for another LRF Fellowship Grant other than in exceptional circumstances, which is decided on a case-by-case basis. However, applicants from previous years who did not receive an award are welcome to apply if they still meet eligibility requirements.
- All LRF applications are self-initiated. LRF does not invite applications from selected individuals or laboratories.
