Developmental Research Program


Larry Kwak, M.D., Ph.D.


Richard Champlin, M.D.

The Lymphoma SPORE Developmental Research Program will be a source of seed funding to encourage and explore innovative translational ideas focusing on lymphoma, and to encourage successful researchers working in other fields to focus their expertise towards the development of innovative translational projects in lymphoma. 

The program will support meritorious projects with translational hypotheses that have clinical relevance for the prognosis and treatment of lymphoma and potential for significant impact on the field. The identification and funding of new ideas will be through a peer-review mechanism. 

Announcements for developmental funding opportunities will be made twice each year. The program will solicit and advertise for such proposals from investigators within and outside the institution.

Congratulations to the researchers who were recently awarded the Developmental Research Program (DRP) Awards. 

DRP awards are given for innovative pilot projects that focus on the same subject as the SPORE and could potentially be funded as full projects.   The recipients are:

• San Ming Wang, M.D.,  University of Nebraska Medical Center for “Defining molecular targets in peripheral T-cell Lymphomas through global sequence and methylation profiles”

All three of the one-year awards received $35,000 in funding.
