Researchers and health professionals
The Leukaemia Foundation works closely with health professionals to provide a continuum of care for patients and their families as well as fund innovative Australian research, fellowships and scholarships.
Grants-in-aid are provided to support haematological research into causes, treatments and cures . We also support talented medical students and researchers in their career development.
Established in 1992 at the Queensland Institute of Medical Research , the Unit was established to find cures for haematological cancers and related disorders and deliver the benefits to patients as quickly as possible.
Provide patients, families and carers disease-specific information on diagnosis and treatment, as well as other aspects of living with a leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma or related blood disorder.
