The SLP application process is opening soon.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is planning on re-initiating our special grant program, Screen to Lead Program (SLP) for FY17. A call for applications will be announced in July 2016 for a planned program launch in July 2017. SLP was previously run for two years in FY13 and FY14. This Request for Applications (RFA) from qualified academic laboratories is for drug discovery support specifically directed towards medicinal chemistry and/or drug target screening in hematological malignancies. LLS recognizes a significant need for investigators to receive resources for high-throughput screening and/or optimization of small molecules into drug-like compounds. These grants will be peer reviewed by a special committee and are anticipated to be for two years.
Questions about the program can be directed to James.Kasper@lls.org .
Please check this webpage in the coming weeks for details on how to apply and for key dates.
