The Leukemia Research Foundation exclusively funds New Investigators – individuals beginning to establish their own laboratories that are no longer under the tutelage of a senior scientist mentor.
Preference given to proposals that focus on leukemia, lymphoma, MDS, and multiple myeloma.
Funding & Duration
The amount is up to US $100,000 (approx AUD $136,000) for one year.
The funding cycle begins on July 1, 2017.
New Investigators are considered to be within seven (7) years of their first independent position. Years as a resident physician, fellow physician, or post-doctoral fellow are considered to be training years. Adjustments for career interruptions can be made. These could include but are not limited to, family leave, military service, major illness or injury.
Applicants are not required to be U.S. citizens. Research projects undertaken outside the U.S. will be considered.
