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.
