Research Scholars Program in Hematology/Oncology
The mission of the Gilead Sciences Research Scholars Program in Hematology/Oncology (the "program") is to support innovative scientific research that will advance knowledge in the field of hematology/oncology, with a focus on hematologic malignancies, and provide support for research career development.

To that end, grants of up to $130,000 over two years will be awarded to junior faculty researchers for innovative translational research projects in hematology/oncology (with a focus on hematologic malignancies) that can be either based around a clinical trial with strong correlative science or laboratory investigation.
