Our Project Grants were created in 2017 to support senior researchers and their teams.

We recognised that the haematoncology research community needed funding for project grants. The Leukaemia UK Project Grants were developed with three main emphases:

  • Potential for advancement in the fundamental understanding of leukaemia, other blood cancers or related diseases or improvement in diagnosis and/or treatment
  • Novelty of the research project
  • Potential for high scientific and/or clinical impact.

The awards will be fund experienced researchers and their teams over a three-year duration.
