Created in honour of the late Professor John Goldman (1938-2013), world-renowned haematologist. 

The John Goldman Fellowships have been created to nurture the next generation of scientific talent in the early stages of their careers, providing up to £125,000 for up to two years.

Through our John Goldman Fellowships we empower promising doctors and scientists to become the scientific leaders of tomorrow. Giving them the opportunity to collect the data needed to prove the validity of theories, a crucial step towards our aim of curing leukaemia.

Applications are invited from scientists and clinician-scientists working in UK universities/hospitals in the areas of leukaemia, blood cancer research and related-fields. 

There is no age limit, although the fellowship programme is designed to provide an opportunity for talented early career scientists to develop as independent investigators.
