In-kind grants of mentoring, training, and medical education to USA and Canada hematology and oncology fellows and junior faculty members for research related to lymphoma. Grants are intended for participation in a two-year program that provides education related to clinical research and career development, as well as career management and quality-of-life issues. The Foundation considers “lymphoma” to encompass all recognized lymphoma subtypes as well as chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL).

The goals of the LCRMP include:
- Provide mentoring and education to hematology/oncology fellows and junior faculty. The program will emphasize training in clinical research methods and design, statistical analysis, pathology, incorporating and interpreting correlative studies into clinical trials, and grant submission and funding. The program also aims to foster mentorship and research collaboration among experts and trainees in the field.
- Assist in the development of a specific clinical trial in patients with lymphoma and to set the foundation for grant development to support the trial. Study design and implementation will be discussed in a small group setting consisting of experts in the field, statisticians, and other trainees in the program, where information, ideas, guidance, support and connections are shared, and where mentoring relationships can be developed.
- Provide continuing training, career development advice, and mentorship among trainees and experts in the field and to foster future participation and collaboration within the LRF through follow-up programming and activities.

LRF Scholars attend an initial LCRMP workshop, which is four days in length. LRF will convene a faculty of experts in lymphoma clinical research who will share their experience and knowledge throughout the program with the Scholars as a group and in small breakout groups. Faculty participating in the small groups and serving as mentors for the program will remain for the entirety of the program. Faculty not only mentor Scholars at the workshop but will also be available to Scholars post-workshop. In addition, a handful of select presenters with specific knowledge for the didactic sessions or who have successfully obtained LRF
grants will attend at least a portion of the program to present selected topics or to provide training in grant development and submission.

The workshop will consist of Scholars presenting their proposed clinical research projects, attending the content sessions, working with Mentors including a statistician, revising their proposed clinical studies and developing Specific Aims for a future grant submission, and presenting the revised protocol and Specific Aims of future grants at the completion of the workshop. In addition to the workshop, scholars will be supported throughout the following year by program faculty and LRF staff. In addition, scholars will attend two meetings (tentatively scheduled for October 2019 and 2020) in order to participate in LRF scientific meetings and mock grant review exercises.
