CLL Society's 2024 Integrative Medicine in CLL Research Award

From the generosity of the Sim Einstein Research Foundation, Inc. and Vigyan Singhal, every dollar donated up to the total goal will be matched through June 2024. Their support will match up to $61,000 from donors like you to help us reach our $122,000 goal to fully fund a new Integrative Medicine in CLL Award as part of CLL Society's Research Program.

With their support, every dollar you donate towards this project will be doubled, and we will be able to successfully launch a new research grant opportunity for our 2024 grant cycle. Join us as we fund scientific research in CLL and make a greater impact on the lives of those living with CLL/SLL.

About CLL Society's Research Program

CLL Society is rapidly positioning itself to be a dynamic driver of research in the field of chronic lymphocytic leukemia. In 2024, CLL Society is expanding our research program to include an Integrative Medicine in CLL grant opportunity.

CLL Society's Research Program was created out of the growing need for there to be more funding available to researchers for academic and research-related work that is specifically focused on CLL/SLL. CLL is the most common adult leukemia and remains largely incurable. For the many individuals living with CLL, they deserve improved treatment options and a cure.

By providing researchers with meaningful grants, we can help to grow and develop a new generation of scientists committed to solving the unmet needs of CLL and SLL.

CLL Society is proud to be the first nonprofit organization of its kind to launch a research program that is solely dedicated to chronic lymphocytic leukemia. We dream of a day very soon when this work will lead to a cure.

What is Integrative Medicine?

Integrative medicine is a patient-centered, evidence-informed field of comprehensive cancer care that uses mind-body practices, natural products, and lifestyle modifications from different traditions in addition to conventional cancer treatments to promote optimal health and well-being.

Why Is It Important to Study Integrative Medicine?

Integrative medicine practices are the only form of therapy that truly address a patient's holistic well-being. Many integrative medicine interventions are widely available to the public. However, strong scientific evidence about whether they are safe and offer clinical benefits for specific medical conditions (such as CLL/SLL) and symptoms are lacking.

Who Funds Integrative Medicine Research?

It is people like you donating to research programs at nonprofits like CLL Society that make funding available for scientists to study the field of integrative medicine.

Funding for integrative medicine is extremely limited from other sources, but an area of great interest to the CLL community.

CLL Society's new Integrative Medicine in CLL Award will provide the much-needed funding to researchers who value this important field of study for patients just as much as we do - but we need your support to make it happen.

What is CLL Society's Integrative Medicine in CLL Award?

For the 2024 research cycle, CLL Society is introducing a new grant opportunity, a 2-year Integrative Medicine in CLL Award.

The award is designed to provide early funding for innovative projects in the field of integrative medicine. Applications must focus exclusively on patients with CLL/SLL and significantly contribute to accelerating progress for the patients CLL Society serves.

The award goals include:

  • Promote early exploration of research ideas that look at integrative approaches to addressing health challenges faced by those living with CLL/SLL
  • Support research that will bolster the scientific evidence on the benefit of integrative medicine practices for patients, including improved quality of life

  • Help to address gaps in current research
