The CLF is pleased to announce Leandro Cerchietti, MD, Assistant Professor, Weill Cornell Medical College, and Rachael Clark, MD, PhD, Associate Professor, Brigham and Women's Hospital Department of Dermatology as the recipients of the 2013 CLARIONS Research Award Grant. Dr. Cerchietti’s research focuses on thyroid hormone receptor modulation in CTCL treatment and Dr. Clark’s research centers on low dose external radiation as a cure for skin resident T-cell lymphomas.

CLARIONS is the signature funding initiative of the Research Awards Program, dedicated exclusively to funding cutaneous lymphoma research. CLARIONS stands for Curing Cutaneous Lymphoma by Advancing Research, Innovation and Offering New Solutions. This program supports investigators interested in conducting innovative cutaneous lymphoma research to help uncover causes and improve the treatment and quality of life for patients.

The CLF is thrilled to have María Florencia Cayrol as the recipient of the 2013 American Society of Hematology Young Investigator Award (YIA). Her research focuses on thyroid hormones maintaining the CTCL malignant phenotype through membrane- and nuclear-initiated transcriptional programs.

Congratulations to all of our research award recipients and we look forward to following their studies.
