Our John Goldman Fellowships were created in honour of Professor John Goldman (1938 – 2013), a renowned haematologist and pioneer in the treatment of leukaemia.

These prestigious awards are aimed at early career researchers with a passion for science, a desire to develop new ideas and translate scientific advances into clinical practice. Successful applicants will demonstrate that they are the potential scientific/clinical leaders of the future and their research project must be novel with the capacity to make a real difference to blood cancer knowledge and/or treatments.

Who can apply?

Applications are accepted from scientists and clinician-scientists working in UK universities/hospitals. There is no age limit, although the fellowship programme is designed to provide funding at a critical point in a researcher’s career, the transition to becoming an independent researcher.

Awards are offered up to £125,000 to span a maximum 2-year period.

Research has never been more needed and this is why we are committed to continuing our investment in 2021. We are delighted to offer funding for the John Goldman Fellowships in 2021.
