Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

New Idea Award

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is proud to announce the fourth year of The New Idea Award, a grant program designed to identify novel research strategies with a potential for high impact on blood cancer. Specifically, this program supports the initial exploration of untested but potentially transformative ideas that challenge our knowledge of blood cancer or the manner in which we approach diagnosis or treatment. Competitive proposals will describe ideas that take the investigator’s research in a substantially new direction, and thus preliminary data is not required.

 

The goal of this program is to advance novel concepts that may eventually lead to significant improvements in the clinical outcomes of patients with blood cancer. Grants will support initial exploration of untested but potentially transformative ideas that may radically change the way we treat or understand blood cancer. In addition to applications from blood cancer researchers, we strongly encourage applications from those with expertise outside of blood cancer, with the goal of stimulating new research. In order to receive such an award, applicants must succinctly describe as one aim the innovative idea/approach and a method for testing it within the one year grant period.

 

Grants will be awarded in an amount of up to $75,000 for a one year period.

Progeria Research Foundation

Research on Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome (HGPS, or Progeria)

The Progeria Research Foundation (PRF) is the only organization in the world dedicated to discovering treatments and the cure for Progeria and its aging-related disorders. Progeria is a rare, fatal, “premature aging” disease caused by the mutant protein called ‘progerin’. Affected children exhibit excessive atherosclerosis and die at an average age of 14 years due to heart attacks or stroke. Studies have solidified biological links between Progeria, cardiovascular disease and aging, including the observation that progerin is expressed at low levels in cells and tissues from non-HGPS individuals.

 

PRF will consider proposals in all areas directly relevant to Progeria. Two priority areas are listed below:

  1. Discovery of biological markers of disease in HGPS that can be assessed in human and/or mouse samples. Highest priority will be given to those markers that can be assayed in easily obtainable human samples such as blood, urine, and cheek swabs. In addition, proposals that explore biomarker relevance to disease process and/or change in markers with disease treatment are encouraged.

 

  1. Discovery and/or testing of candidate treatment compounds in both cell based and mouse models of HGPS. Of note, proposals should test compounds in a progerin-producing mouse model as the priority. Comparisons to other mouse models of disease, such as ZMPSTE24-/- and other non-progerin producing mouse models are acceptable, but only as a comparison to progerin-producing models.

 

Awards are given in 3 categories with varying funding levels and lengths of time (up to three years). Projects must show promise for contributing to the scientific or clinical advancement in the field of Progeria.
