The research we have funded since 1960 has helped transform treatments and taken us to the point where the day we will beat blood cancer is now in sight. Our researchers are working to finish the job.
Why we fund research
We want to ensure the 40,000 people diagnosed with blood cancer in the UK each year are given effective treatments. We’ve invested £500 million in research.
Our research impact
Our researchers are making the discoveries that will have a positive impact on the lives of people with blood cancer.

The Blood Cancer UK Childhood Leukaemia CellBank
The Blood Cancer UK Childhood Leukaemia CellBank is a cutting-edge facility based in Stockport which collects, stores, and processes samples from children who have been given a diagnosis of leukaemia.
Funding for researchers
Our blood cancer research grants include long and short term projects, career development awards and basic research through to phase III clinical trials.
Our policy on open access
We believe that free access to and unrestricted re-use of published research is the best way to share and build upon new knowledge and ideas.
Using animals in research
We want to have the biggest impact for blood cancer patients. Because of this, we believe that using animals in research, in the right way, is the right thing to do.
