SPORE leukemia program applications due May 1

March 20, 2018

Applications for the SPORE in Leukemia Developmental Research Award are being accepted through May 1, 2018. The award provides up to $70,000 for one year. The start date is July 2, 2018.

The Developmental Research Award is aimed at all faculty members (instructor level or higher). In addition, senior post-doctoral fellows who have written commitment from their department chair indicating promotion to instructor or assistant professor by the time of the award are eligible. Preference will be given to junior faculty or established investigators with a new translational leukemia research focus.

The goal of the award is to support innovative translational leukemia research. Proposed projects will be reviewed with the intent that they will develop sufficiently, within one to two years, to be submitted for external peer-reviewed funding. Projects with a clinical trial must be ready for study activation within six months of award.
