The LRF exclusively funds New Investigators – individuals who are beginning to establish their own laboratories and are no longer under the tutelage of a senior scientist mentor. These one year grants are $100,000 each, an impressive amount that allows innovative scientists to act on their ideas, and try new procedures and experiments that will lead to significant breakthroughs.
Over the years, the LRF has funded hundreds of research scientists and projects on five different continents with our exclusive focus on New Investigators.
