You’re investing in the researchers of tomorrow, today

Thanks to our supporters, Dr Khai Li Chai was recently awarded a Leukaemia Foundation PhD Scholarship, through the Haematology Society of Australia and New Zealand (HSANZ).

Dr Chai is a specialist clinical and laboratory haematologist at Monash University undertaking vital research into blood cancer.

Your generosity will support Dr Chai over the next three years to investigate people living with a range of blood cancers: chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL), non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL), multiple myeloma, and individuals who have undergone stem cell transplants.

Her research will focus on hypogammaglobulinemia – a condition where the body does not produce enough antibodies and is linked with serious infections. Sadly, it is a major cause of mortality and illness in affected patients.

Her work will explore antibody therapy to prevent and treat infections in patients, to ultimately lead to a better standard of care.

You can read more about her project and the other bright young minds our supporters are helping here.
