CLL Research Grant Eligibility

CLL Society is committed to embracing diversity and building spaces of equitable representation to meet the unmet needs of all individuals living with chronic lymphocytic leukemia and small lymphocytic lymphoma (CLL / SLL) in every aspect of our programs and support services. We believe that in order to meet the needs of all CLL / SLL patients, we must be intentional about ensuring diverse representation in research. CLL Society embodies this belief by identifying and minimizing health disparities across racial and ethnic groups as a key objective of the Research Program.

We look forward to funding investigators who are inclusive of diversity in their research proposals and who are continually looking to establish a better understanding of the unmet needs of CLL / SLL patients across all demographic groups.

CLL Society believes minority applicants are valued members of the research community and are vital to its success. Women and underrepresented minorities are particularly encouraged to apply.
