Here at Leuka we believe in the power of new ideas. These awards were created in honour of the late Professor John Goldman (1938-2013), Leuka’s founding Chairman and a world-renowned haematologist. He was a pioneer in the treatment of leukaemia, and believed in nurturing the next generation of scientific talent in the early stages of their careers.
It takes time to make scientific discoveries. That’s why we’re giving promising scientists a kick start to their research by providing up to £125,000 for up to two years.
Through our John Goldman Fellowships we empower promising doctors and scientists to become the scientific leaders of tomorrow. Giving them the opportunity to collect the data they need to prove that their theories are viable is a crucial step towards the aim of curing leukaemia and blood cancers.
By pump-priming research we help researchers to go on to secure longer term funding from bodies such as the Medical Research Council.
All Leuka grants benefit blood cancer research by providing financial support for innovative research of the highest scientific quality. We aim to fund projects that will help us turn innovative research into treatments more quickly.
The fellowship awards are aimed at those with a passion for science, a desire to develop new ideas and translate scientific advances into clinical practice.
