Purpose: These awards support incredibly promising physician scientists who are applying novel and state-of-the-art techniques to address fundamental problems in the genesis and treatment of blood related cancers.

Funding amount: The total budget shall not exceed $225,000 total ($75,000 per year over three years). Overhead costs cannot exceed 10% ($22,500 total or $7,500 per year). This amount is to be included in the $75,000 per year award.
