The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society hopes to encourage and promote research activity of the highest quality. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Career Development Program provides awards intended to meet the specific needs of investigators at different stages in their research careers.

Scholars are highly qualified investigators who have demonstrated their ability to conduct original research bearing on leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma. Scholars are expected to hold independent faculty-level or equivalent positions and have obtained substantial support for their research from a national agency. Scholar awards are for $110,000 (stipend $105,000 + $5,000 institutional overhead) per year for five years.

Scholars in Clinical Research are highly qualified investigators who hold independent faculty-level appointments and who are conducting original, independent applied research, often involving early-stage clinical trials which will advance the prevention, diagnosis or treatment of hematologic malignancies. Scholars are expected to have concomitant support for their research from another source or agency. Scholar in Clinical Research awards are for $110,000 (stipend $105,000 + $5,000 institutional overhead) per year for five years.

Special Fellows are qualified investigators who have completed a minimum of two years of postdoctoral research training and are continuing their research under the direction of a research sponsor. The Special Fellowship should permit the scientist to begin to transition to an independent research career. Special Fellow awards are for $60,000 (stipend $ 56,000 + $ 4,000 institutional overhead) per year for three years.

Special Fellows in Clinical Research (SFCR) are researchers who hold a Ph.D., M.D. or equivalent degree and have completed a minimum of two years of clinical hematology, oncology, hematology/oncology or hematopathology training or postdoctoral research training in a clinical discipline.  These grantees should provide evidence that their career focus will be on the prevention, diagnosis, or treatment of leukemia, lymphoma, or myeloma.  SFCR awards are for $60,000 (stipend $ 56,000 + $ 4,000 institutional overhead) per year for three years.

Fellows are promising investigators with less than two years of postdoctoral research training who are embarking on research careers in, or related to, leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma under the direction of a research sponsor. Fellow awards are for $50,000 (stipend $47,000 + $3,000 institutional overhead) per year for three years. Annual renewals are based on a non-competitive progress report review.

Because MU is limited to one application for each of the four categories, preliminary applications must be submitted to the Office of Research, 203 Jesse Hall, by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, September 2, 2005.
