Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA, Canada, and International emerging investigators for blood cancer research projects. Preference will be given to projects that focus on lymphoma, leukemia, multiple myeloma, and MDS. Applicants must submit a letter of intent prior to submitting a full application.

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. 

Providing one year grants to selected New Investigator researchers, allows innovative scientists to act on their ideas, and try new procedures and experiments that will hopefully lead to significant breakthroughs. The Leukemia Research Foundation funds the research of scientists that are from independent labs, not the labs of pharmaceutical companies.

Researchers funded by the LRF publish their results in an effort to inform the scientific community about their advances. In addition, their initial results are used to obtain grants from larger, multi-year funding sources - thus furthering their research and potential for finding a cure.
