In recent years, more attention, funding and science has been devoted to cutaneous lymphoma research than ever before. The Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation has been a strong partner to researchers who are a driving force behind this change, and we are working to increase the number of dollars, scientists and research projects devoted to cutaneous lymphoma.
Through a collaborative approach to research support, the Foundation is focused on improving diagnosis, treatment therapies, better understanding of the disease burden, and advocating for increased research funding that can benefit patients --- with an ultimate goal of helping researchers find a cure for cutaneous lymphoma.
As a result of the Foundation’s commitment to funding promising cutaneous lymphoma research, we established a Research Awards Program (RAP). The first research grant award through RAP was the CLARIONS - Curing Cutaneous Lymphoma by Advancing Research, Innovation and Offering New Solutions. CLARIONS supported investigators interested in conducting innovative cutaneous lymphoma research designed to improve treatments, clinical care and quality of life for patients affected by cutaneous lymphoma.
As the Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation’s CLARIONS Research Award program concludes we are working hard to outline what comes next. It is our intention to continue to focus our support on investigators embarking on innovative research with a focus in cutaneous lymphoma. Stay tuned as we plan to announce the next phase of the Foundation’s research awards soon!
Through the Foundation’s Young Investigator Awards, we facilitate and fund the work of researchers whose projects are dedicated to understanding more about the cause of cutaneous lymphoma. And, through our work with legislators and policy makers, we are advocating for increased federal funding for research that can benefit cutaneous lymphoma patients.
The annual Research Report highlights the studies funded through Research Awards Program - CLARIONS Grant award as well as the recipients of our Young Investigator Awards. The Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation is proud to support these research efforts.
