Current funding opportunities

The Leukaemia Foundation has a long and proud history of funding research.  Since the Leukaemia Foundation implemented its National Research Program in 2000 we have committed $57.8 million to supporting Australia’s best blood cancer researchers and clinicians.  


We have forged research partnerships with likeminded organisations and leading research agencies  including: the Haematology Society of Australia and New Zealand (HSANZ), Cancer Australia, the Australasian Leukaemia & Lymphoma Group (ALLG) the Leukaemia & Lymphoma Society USA and the Snowdome Foundation, to provide funding opportunities for scientists and clinicians at all stages of their careers.
