The Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF) remains dedicated to finding a cure for lymphoma through an aggressively-funded program for researchers.

Through its evidence-based research program, LRF aims to:

  • Advance our understanding of lymphoma, laying the foundation for improved patient care.
  • Attract and train new investigators and clinicians in lymphoma, ensuring that the best and brightest scientific minds are able to continue their commitment to blood cancer research.
  • Bring innovative ideas, energy and collaboration to the nuanced field of lymphoma research.


Since 1992, LRF has made major contributions to the lymphoma research enterprise, awarding more than 340 research grants totaling nearly $60 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.

LRF supports innovative research through both its Young Investigator Grants Program, which seeks to provide early career scientists with opportunities for independent research and mentoring, and its Disease Focus Area Grants, which support faculty researchers studying specific subtypes and/or patient populations through a variety of funding mechanisms.
