Call for Proposals: Lymphoma Research Foundation 3-year Clinical Investigator Career Development Award
The Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF) seeks proposals for its 3-year Clinical Investigator Career Develop Award Grant. The purpose of LRF's Clinical Investigator Career Development Award is to fund training of physician investigators who will participate in developing new therapeutics and diagnostic tools for lymphoma. Physician investigators who are at the level of advanced fellow or junior faculty member with no greater than 5 years of experience beyond completion of their fellowship or post-doctoral training are eligible (five year limit may be non-sequential in case of interruptions for pregnancy or illness).
The focus of the training is to prepare physician investigators to design and administer clinical research studies in lymphoma and to take on the primary responsibilities for clinical research, protocol writing, Institutional Review Board (IRB) submission and publication. The proposed research plan should develop the necessary knowledge and clinical research skills relevant to the investigator's career goals. The Grant is designed to provide physician investigators with support to spend 35-50% of their time implementing clinical research studies in lymphoma. A Career Development Plan is required as part of the Grant Application.
Applications are due by 5pm EST on September 3, 2012. Applications will be peer-reviewed, and applicants will be notified of results by December 2012.
