The Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF) is the nation’s largest non-profit organization devoted to funding innovative research and serving the lymphoma community through a comprehensive series of education programs, outreach initiatives and patient services.
At LRF, our goal is to change the future for everyone whose life has been affected by a lymphoma diagnosis. We are dedicated to funding biomedical research; training the next generation of lymphoma investigators; raising public awareness of the disease; and providing education and support to people with lymphoma, their families and caregivers. We are committed to raising the funds necessary to support these goals.
LRF celebrated 25 years of progress in 2020 and has funded more than $66 million in lymphoma-specific research, including local partnerships with the Mayo Clinic and the University of Minnesota.
Minnesota supporters are among LRF's most active and dedicated in the nation. The Foundation also has close partnerships to the state's most prestigious research institutions and world-class lymphoma physicians. In-person and virtual patient education events and support services are offered year round. LRF also hosts an annual Lymphoma Walk at Lake Nokomis (first weekend in June - the last two years have been virtual, but please save the date for an in-person walk at Lake Nokomis on June 4, 2022), attracting teams of families and friends, who rally together to have raise funds and support and honor loved ones (learn more at www.lymphoma.org/teamLRF or email firstname.lastname@example.org). We invite you to join us!
We recognize that the next generation of lymphoma researchers will be faced with increasingly serious challenges due to the impact of limited grant funding and the evolving research and treatment landscape. Young scientists around the world have highlighted the importance of having mentors and a support system to advise them on their career trajectory and determining which area of research they should pursue.
We believe it is critical to support early career scientists and promote their involvement in the greater lymphoma research community and the LRF mission.
