The goal of this initiative is to help support young investigators to begin their studies in the field of multiple myeloma while advancing the understanding of myeloma disease biology, treatment and drug resistance. The MMRF welcomes proposals on any and all multiple myeloma related topics to the MMRF 2018 Research Fellow Award. Applications for the MMRF 2018 Research Fellow Award Program are solicited from investigators at academic, not-for-profit, institutions in the United States and abroad. Researchers who hold a PhD, MD or equivalent degree at the post-doctorate, clinical fellow, or junior faculty level are encouraged to apply. Post-doctorate and medical fellows applying for the award must work under the supervision of a research mentor in the multiple myeloma field. Investigators at the level of assistant professor who are beginning studies in the multiple myeloma field and are thereby applying for this award must have a research sponsor at their institution who is in the multiple myeloma field and can provide guidance to the applicant in the area of the project proposed. Research Fellow applications are reviewed by an external group of scientists who have the appropriate area of scientific expertise. Scientific ratings use the current NIH scoring system of 1-9 with 1 demonstrating the highest scientific merit and 9 being the lowest. Each proposal is evaluated by two independent outside reviewers and the scores are averaged together. Written critiques of the application are not provided to the applicant. Indirect costs up to 10% are allowed for this award.
