Laboratory work

Research will beat blood cancer

The Eastwood family knew it back in 1960, and so do we. That’s why we’ve invested over £500 million in world-class blood cancer research since 1960 – research which has changed the lives of blood cancer patients.

We fund the research that benefits patients most – we don’t just do research for research’s sake. But we still invest in curiosity. We'll fund that spark of an idea, because those sparks can lead to breakthroughs - real, tangible discoveries that’ll change the world.

At any one time we have over £90 million invested in research. We’re currently funding over 1,000 researchers and clinicians across over 220 active research projects, as well as countless more awards to train the research leaders of the future.

Research grants

Our portfolio includes long and short term research projects, career development awards and clinical trials. We now have a translational pipeline in place that covers basic biological research through to phase III clinical trials.

Our peer review processes were audited in 2015 and meet best practice for the five principles of the AMRC’s ‘principles of peer review’: accountability, balance, independent decision making, impartiality and rotation of scientific advisers.
