Our project grants were created in 2017 to support senior researchers and their teams

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

  • Potential for advancement in the fundamental understanding of leukaemia, other blood cancers, related conditions or improvement in diagnosis and/or treatment – translational projects are particularly encouraged
  • Novelty of the research project
  • Potential for high scientific and/or clinical impact 

The grants fund experienced researchers and their teams over a three-year duration.

Who can apply?

Applications are invited from established research group leaders, senior clinician scientists and/or senior research scientists with an outstanding research track record from across the UK. Grants are available for up to £250,000 to span a maximum three-year period. 

  • The success rate for 2017 applications was 8%
  • The success rate for 2018 applications was 11%
