The Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF) remains dedicated to finding a cure for lymphoma through an aggressively-funded research program. LRF supports innovative research through Clinical Investigator Career Development Awards, Fellowships and several disease-specific research initiatives. These focused initiatives include: the Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia/Small Lymphocytic Lymphoma Initiative; the Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma Program; the Follicular Lymphoma Initiative; and the Mantle Cell Lymphoma Initiative and Consortium.

Through its research program LRF aims to:

  • create therapies and discover cures to help patients now;
  • advance our understanding of lymphoma, laying the foundation for improved patient care;
  • attract and train new investigators and clinicians in lymphoma, ensuring a continuing stream of innovative and forward thinking researchers and clinicians; and
  • bring fresh ideas, energy and collaboration to the challenging field of lymphoma research.

Since 1992, LRF has made major contributions to the lymphoma research enterprise, awarding more than 300 research grants totaling $56 million. The Foundation's volunteer Scientific Advisory Board (SAB), comprised of 45 world-renowned lymphoma experts, guides the Foundation's research activities, seeking out the most innovative and promising lymphoma research projects for support.
