Request for Application: Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation’s CLARIONS Research Awards Program
The signature funding initiative of the Research Awards Program (RAP), is the CLARIONS Grant Program, which stands for Curing Cutaneous Lymphoma by Advancing Research, Innovation and Offering New Solutions. This research grant program supports investigators interested in conducting innovative cutaneous lymphoma research. These grants will help uncover causes and improve the treatment and quality of life for patients. Discovering new avenues for better therapies and, one day, a cure for cutaneous lymphoma are key goals of this program.
Research Funding Priorities
Eligibility and Requirements
Investigators at all levels, from clinical and post-doctoral fellows to established investigators, are eligible to receive
awards. Medical students and graduate students are not eligible. Non-U.S. investigators are eligible and the research funded by the RAP can be conducted at non-U.S. institutions. Investigators must be members of an established and recognized academic institution. All research projects involving human subjects must receive IRB approval.
Each year the CLF will provide two $25,000 awards, renewable for 1 year contingent upon approval by the CLF
Board of Directors based upon the CLF Scientific Review Board’s review and recommendation.
A small indirect cost amount between $1,000-$2,000 is allowable.
The CLF’s RAP seeks to fund innovative research in all areas of cutaneous lymphomas with particular interest in:
-- Etiology and risk factors of cutaneous lymphomas.
-- Measures of disease impact on individuals and populations affected by cutaneous lymphomas.
-- Translating discoveries into diagnostic and therapeutic advances in cutaneous lymphomas.
-- Optimizing therapies for cutaneous lymphomas.
-- Improving quality of life for individuals with cutaneous lymphomas
