How is money for research spent?

The Society has 3 research grant programs:

1) Career Development Program: supports promising young scientistswith 3-5 year grants.

2) Translational Research Program: provides 3 year grants to support early-stage research on blood cancers; funding is extended for highly promising projects.

3) Specialized Center of Research (SCOR): these are grants given to clusters of research groups that work together to find new ways to treat blood cancers. These research groups are awarded up to $1-1.5 million annually for 5 years.

Did you know…The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is the world's largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding research for blood cancer and providing education and patient services.
