Lymphoma Research Foundation: 2018 Clinical Investigator Career Development Award (2018-2021)
http://www.lymphoma.org

The Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF) is accepting applications to support physician investigators at the level of advanced fellow or junior faculty member who will contribute to the development of new lymphoma therapies and diagnostic tools. Eligible investigators must have no greater than five years of experience beyond completion of their fellowship or postdoctoral training (the five-year limit may be non-sequential in cases of pregnancy or illness). The goal of the program is to prepare physician investigators to design and administer clinical research studies in lymphoma and assume primary responsibilities for clinical research, protocol writing, Institutional Review Board (IRB) submission and publication. As such, a Career Development Plan is required as part of the Grant Application. The proposed research plan should also develop the necessary knowledge and clinical research skills relevant to the investigator’s career goals. The Grant is designed to provide physician investigators with support to spend 35-50 percent of their time implementing clinical research studies in lymphoma. Applicants must be licensed physicians at a clinical research institution in the United States or Canada for the duration of the LRF Clinical Investigator Career Development Grant, and intending to pursue a career in lymphoma clinical research. The applicant must be an advanced fellow or junior faculty member with at least 2 years (24 months) of fellowship or postdoctoral training and no greater than 5 years of experience beyond completion of his/her fellowship or postdoctoral training (the five year limit may be non-sequential) at the start of the award period (March 1, 2018). Persons with non-traditional career tracks are encouraged to apply. They should have participated in developing new therapeutics and/or diagnostic tools for lymphoma. The CDA recipient may not simultaneously receive another competitive career development award (such as NIH Kseries awards, American Cancer Society Mentored Research Scholar Grants) and/or any grant that supports primarily PI salary during the period of the LRF Grant. A Primary Mentor at the Applicant’s institution must be identified in the application and this individual’s role in the training and research activities of the applicant must be described, including a plan for periodic evaluation of the applicant’s progress. Institutional overhead is not allowed.

Application Deadline: September 6, 2017 at 5:00pm EST. Award notifications will be made December 2017 with funding beginning as early as March 1, 2018. Application Guidelines: http://www.lymphoma.org/atf/cf/%7Baaf3b4e5-2c43-404c-afe5-fd903c87b254%7D/CDA%20RFP%202018%20FINAL.PDF
