Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) and RUNX1 Research Program (RRP)

Grants of up to $60,000 per year to USA, Canada, and International investigators at nonprofit institutions for cancer research projects. Funding is intended to support the work of early career scientists who have a doctorate and are within five years of a faculty appointment.
The key objective of this program is to promote the establishment of a new generation of translational and clinical researchers interested in tackling inherited hematologic malignancy predisposition disorders with a focus on RUNX1-familial platelet disorder. RPP believes that providing capital to early career investigators not only injects funding to where it is needed most, but also cultivates a new cohort of investigators who will be invested in an area of research that historically has had limited attention. The program also aims to support, inform, educate and connect patients and healthcare providers in the RUNX1 community.
The RUNX1 Early Career Investigator grant is a 3-year award designed to fund research in strategies leading to the development of therapies to prevent the transition from pre-leukemia to leukemia for patients with RUNX1-FPD. Collaboration and data sharing are a priority for this research program. The RUNX1 Research Program and ALSF host an annual scientific meeting that brings together grant recipients and other scientists. Grant recipients are expected to present their progress as part of the annual review.
Aims of research proposals must be relevant to the ultimate goal of preventing hematologic malignant transformation in RUNX1-FPD. Proposals that seek to translate from bench to bedside will receive priority.
Example areas of research interests include:
