Specialized Center of Research Program
Interdisciplinary research, collaboration and teamwork in the effort to cure and better treat blood cancers is what's behind The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS's) Specialized Center of Research Program.
The Marshall A. Lichtman Specialized Center of Research (SCOR) program is our most ambitious research opportunity to date. This innovative program supports interdisciplinary research across at least three independent research projects that are integrated and supported by scientific core laboratories.
Members of our SCOR teams include some of the brightest medical specialists in the field of leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma research--brought together to be part of a highly organized and inspired team approach to speed the discovery of new drugs and curative treatment.
We invite you to be part of an innovative, interdisciplinary research team and a catalyst in helping to develop groundbreaking treatment for leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma.
