- Provide patients with kinder, less toxic treatments
- Assist in transferring research progress from the lab to a clinical setting
- Broaden and deepen knowledge of children and young people’s cancers.
The focus should be on improving outcomes for children and young people.
The Kay Kendall Leukaemia Fund was established in 1984 under the Will of the late James Sainsbury CBE. It awards grants for research on aspects of leukaemia and for relevant studies on related haematological malignancies. Grants are awarded for first class research on innovative proposals, particularly those close to the care of leukaemia patients or the prevention of leukaemia or related diseases. Project grants are awarded twice yearly, and Intermediate, and Junior Fellowships of 3 – 4 years are awarded annually. The Fund also considers support for capital projects that will have direct benefit to leukaemia patient care.
