Call for Applications: Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation Bio-Therapeutics Impact Award
Application due date: June 12, 2014 (11:59 PM ET)
All requests must be submitted using ALSF’s online application.
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation evolved from a young cancer patient’s front yard lemonade stand to a national foundation for childhood cancer.
The Bio-Therapeutics Impact Award accelerates the development of clinical trials for promising biologic approaches to treating childhood cancer. These approaches include, but are not limited to, immunotherapy, gene therapy and small molecules. The award, intended for investigators who are initiating clinical trials or undertaking the pre-clinical work necessary to move into the IND (investigational new drug) phase, totals the maximum of $1.5 million awarded over three years.
Call for Applications: Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation Reach Awards
Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) evolved from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004) into a national fundraising movement to raise awareness and find cures for all childhood cancers.
Reach Awards are designed to move hypothesis-driven research toward the clinic. A successful application will identify an unmet clinical need relevant to the care of patients with pediatric cancer and describe how the work performed will allow for the translation of hypothesis-driven research to the clinic keeping broader clinical testing and implementation in view.
All Reach Award applications must be received by May 30, 2014 - 11:59 PM ET.
Maximum of $250,000 in total costs awarded over two years.
All applications must be submitted using ALSF’s online submission process.
The purpose of the Reach Award is to advance ALSF’s mission to find cures and better treatments for childhood cancers by providing support to move hypothesis-driven research into the clinic. Significant barriers exist that impede the translation of innovative and important ideas to the clinic. The Reach Award seeks to remove one of these barriers by providing support for important pre-clinical projects that are necessary to move a study from the pre-clinical arena into a clinical trial. Thus, the goal of this award is to support selected “late translational” studies needed to ultimately initiate a clinical trial. Preference will be given to those research projects which, if funded, will result in the initiation of a clinical trial within two to three years.
Primary applicants may be Assistant, Associate or Professor level investigators who demonstrate a track record of discovery, investigation and external funding. Applicants may be M.D., D.O., Ph.D, or M.D./Ph.D. Applicants must have a demonstrated track record of pediatric cancer research with experience in translational research Multiple investigator applications that bring together pairs or teams of researchers with complementary expertise are encouraged. Phase I/II Trials are not eligible for funding by this grant mechanism.

Children’s Leukemia Research Association Research Grant Program
Each year, CLRA's Medical Advisory Committee, consisting of prominent internationally known and respected hematologists, reviews submitted research proposals from doctors nationwide.
Using your contributions, we fund research grants for doctors who are conducting the most promising research into leukemia, in the hopes of isolating the causes and finding a cure for this dread disease.
The objectives of this committee are to direct the funds of the Association into the most promising projects, and where funding would not duplicate other funding sources.
With your help, we are getting closer every day! Because of the support of friends like you, the scientific community is making incredible strides in developing chemotherapy regimens that are extending the lives of leukemia patients. Not everyone under treatment goes into remission but our research grants are funding the examinations into why this is so, and how we can continue to combat leukemia.
How the CLRA Research Grant Program Works
Any doctor at the Ph.D. or MD level who is involved in research towards finding the causes and cure for leukemia may apply.
Simply access the form available on our Website and print, or call or write to us for one.
Please submit an original and three copies of your application prior to June 30 of each year. It is then reviewed by our Medical Advisory Committee. A decision is made by the following calendar year.
In order that we may fund as many projects as possible, grants are limited to a maximum of $30,000 each, subject to availability of funds.
