Translational Research Program
The Translational Research Program (TRP) puts you on the bench-to-bedside fast track when it comes to finding better treatment and cures for leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) funds new and innovative research that shows high promise for translating basic biomedical knowledge to clinical application. The goal of translational research is to reduce the time between laboratory findings and actual treatment.
The Quality of Life Research Funding Initiative
