Young Investigator Mentoring and Training Program

Lymphoma Clinical Research Mentoring Program (LCRMP) - The LCRMP offers mentoring and education to hematology/oncology fellows and junior faculty in the first four years post-fellowship, dedicated to clinical research in the field of lymphoma and CLL. Program participants, called LRF Scholars, attend and participate in a week long intensive introductory workshop and follow up programming where they will receive mentoring from experts in the field on how to successfully design and administer clinical research studies, and develop the professional skills to succeed as an independent researcher. This year’s LCRMP Workshop will take place March 5-9, 2019 in Scottsdale, AZ.

Accepted Scholars receive a $10,000 award to support travel to conferences, tuition, and/or other professional development expenses; travel to LCRMP programs is also covered by LRF.
