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 .
The Screen to Lead Program will open May 1, 2018.
How to Apply/Deadlines
LLS uses its own Research Portal powered by FLUXX for Letter of Intent (LOI) and full application submission.
