The Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation’s CLARIONS Research Awards Program

Discovering new avenues for improved therapies and a cure for cutaneous lymphoma

In March 2012, the Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation’s Board of Directors approved a new Research Awards Program, the first dedicated exclusively to funding cutaneous lymphoma research.

The signature funding initiative of the Research Awards Program (RAP), is the CLARIONS Grant Program, which stands for Curing Cutaneous Lymphoma by Advancing Research, Innovation and Offering New Solutions.  This research grant program supports investigators interested in conducting innovative cutaneous lymphoma research.   These grants will help uncover causes and improve the treatment and quality of life for patients. Discovering new avenues for better therapies and, one day, a cure for cutaneous lymphoma are key goals of this program.

“As someone who has worked with the Foundation since its inception, it’s especially rewarding to see the launch of the CLARIONS grant program.  We’ve been hearing the voices of our patients who have shown tremendous interest in research.  We are thrilled to bring this program to the cutaneous lymphoma community,” commented Stuart R. Lessin, M.D., President of the Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation.

“Research is a vital part of the mission of the Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation, and we’re committed to funding promising cutaneous lymphoma research. We look forward to working collaboratively with scientists, clinicians, patients, supporters and partners who share in our passion for bringing improved treatments to patients,” expressed Pierluigi Porcu, M.D., the Foundation’s Medical Affairs Research Committee Chair and Associate Professor of Internal Medicine, Division of Hematology, Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center.
