Leukaemia UK launches new Patient Care Pioneer Award

Leukaemia UK is delighted to launch a brand-new funding scheme in 2024, intended specifically for innovative, patient-focussed applied research and aimed at UK-based healthcare professionals.

The £50,000 Patient Care Pioneer Award funding is offered for cutting-edge, patient-centred projects that seek to explore new practical approaches to improve treatment, care, and quality of life for leukaemia patients. Projects should be of short duration and will provide rapid proof of principle/evidence to address an unmet patient need, develop a proposed practice-changing improvement for the benefit of patient treatment and care, or generate robust preliminary data for a subsequent larger funding application.

The funding is aimed particularly at nurses and other allied healthcare professionals at any stage of their career working within the UK haematology and associated communities. Leukaemia UK is particularly interested in proposals which seek to address an unmet need or develop new, improved practices for patients in communities that are poorly served or underrepresented in research.

Applications will open in early March 2024 and close on 3rd May 2024. To find out more about the Patient Care Pioneer Award visit: https://www.leukaemiauk.org.uk/research-and-advocacy/research-funding-opportunities/patient-care-pioneer-award/
