Research Grant application
Leukaemia & Myeloma Research UK offer research grants to those who uphold our primary objectives: to benefit the public to protect and promote the health of the public, in particular by research into the nature, causes, diagnosis, prevention, treatment and cure of leukaemia and myeloma, including the development of research into practical applications for the prevention, treatment and cure of leukaemia and myeloma and to provide information and raise public understanding of such matters.
The Trustees at Leukaemia & Myeloma Research UK recognise that a limited amount of funds are available to distribute each year. The Trustees’ current funding priorities are to advance understanding of stem cells and how they can be used to treat blood cancer patients, particularly through stem cell transplants.
The research grant application process is now closed.
