For over 20 years, the Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation’s primary mission has been to provide education and support for patients with cutaneous lymphoma. Since 2005, that mission has slowly expanded to include “facilitating research” leading to a combined total of 51 awards and grants to support cutaneous lymphoma researchers around the world - an investment of over $650,000.
Vision: To be the home for funding cutaneous lymphoma research
With a new vision of its role in cutaneous lymphoma research, the Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation's goal is to expand our research grant program to establish a sustainable source of funding for cutaneous lymphoma research - with the ultimate goal of funding $100,000 projects annually.
Susan Thornton, CEO, is joined by members of the Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation's Research Advisory Council to take a look at research funded by the Foundation, the work the Council has been doing, and talk about our Research Roadmap and its importance for cutaneous lymphoma research.

The Foundation's research vision is focused on answering three critical questions posed by patients and funding the best research projects addressing them. Our team of top scientists and physicians identified the following 3 pillars of research to fill critical gaps in knowledge:
- Why did I get cutaneous lymphoma?
- What cutaneous lymphoma do I have?
- How do I treat my cutaneous lymphoma?
Beneath these pillars are specific areas of interest to be researched - learn more about each by clicking on them.
Becoming the home for funding cutaneous lymphoma research in order to move the 3 pillars of research forward is a lofty goal and we cannot do it with out you. We hope you will join our vision.
