Established through the generosity of the Peykoff Family and Niagara Cares, the $10 million Initiative is poised to transform the follicular lymphoma treatment landscape for tens of thousands of patients by harnessing LRF’s unique resources, convening the world’s experts in follicular lymphoma research and patient care, and driving direct investment in clinical research.
Projects awarded from this year’s class of CDA and Postdoctoral Fellows include early clinical trials of novel therapies, investigations into the biology of Hodgkin lymphoma and aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphomas, and new mechanisms
