Our Project Grants are a new funding award created in 2017.
Our Project Grants are a new funding stream for senior researchers.
We recognised that the haematoncology research community needed funding for project grants. The awards 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.
Applications were invited from established research group leaders, senior clinician scientists and/or senior research scientists with an outstanding research track record from across the UK. The awards will be funding experienced researchers and their teams over a three-year duration.
