Our Research Strategy

If you are considering applying for ELF research support, please review the following items about the type of projects we’ve supported in the past and more on our strategy, grants and fellowships, and do contact us in the first instance to air your initial proposals.

ELF welcomes applications from clinicians and health professionals to fund work that can be demonstrated to have an immediate or near future benefit to patients.

It is particularly important to ELF in attracting donors and fundraisers that such research work should “stand alone,” rather than be incorporated into the type of programmes often embarked upon by the larger leukaemia charities.

ELF will also consider applications for funding the provision of equipment and facilities used to treat patients. In the past we have been particularly successful in attracting applications for initial funding of a number of new Clinical Nursing Specialist roles. Once having demonstrating their viability, the hospitals have in each case, taken over responsibility for permanent funding.
