Aim:  The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Inc. (LLS) is a national voluntary health agency dedicated to the conquest of hematologic malignancies and relevant premalignant conditions. 

The Translational Research Program (TRP) was formed to enhance the transfer of basic research findings to clinical usefulness. Applications are sought that propose novel approaches to the prevention, diagnosis, or treatment of hematological malignancies and related pre-malignant conditions.  Proposals should be based on molecular, cellular, or integrated systems findings and be conceptually innovative.  The application should have a clear plan for the eventual clinical translation of the studies proposed and the results expected.  This feature will be an important consideration of the review process.

Funding:       max. $600,000

Duration:      3 years

Eligibility: LLS welcomes applications from both US citizens and non-citizens, as well as applicants who are performing research outside the US.  Applicants must be appointed to a not-for-profit institution at the time of application submission. Applicants must hold a PhD, MD, DVM, or equivalent degree. The TRP program is intended for independent, established researchers. Therefore, applicants holding positions such as post-doctoral fellows, instructors, etc. are discouraged from applying.

How to Apply: The two-stage application process begins with submission of a Letter of Intent (LOI). All submissions must use the LLS Research Portal at https://lls.fluxx.io.
