John Goldman Fellowships for 2023 now open
Leukaemia UK is delighted to announce that we are funding more ground-breaking research in 2023, by continuing our investment in early career scientists and clinicians for our prestigious John Goldman Fellowships.
Applications for the annual fellowship programme are now open to scientists and clinician-scientists working in UK universities, research institutions or 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.
The maximum award available is £150,000, for a minimum 18-month and maximum 2-year period.
The John Goldman Fellowships were created in honour of Professor John Goldman (1938 – 2013), a renowned haematologist and pioneer in the treatment of leukaemia.
The awards are aimed at early career researchers with a passion for science, and a desire to develop new ideas and translate scientific advances into clinical practice.
Successful applicants will show that they are the potential scientific/clinical leaders of the future. Their proposed research project must be novel with the capacity to make advances in our knowledge of leukaemia and related diseases and the development of new and kinder treatments.
