Each year, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada forms a group of medical experts with the task of reviewing research projects taking place in Canada that show the greatest promise in advancing our understanding of different blood cancers, ability to test therapies and ultimately, to find cures.
Once a year, our Scientific Review Panel selects research projects led by established and new scientists working in various cancer centres across Canada.
Our Operating Grants offer funding (up to $100,000/year) for two-years for basic research that contributes to the advancement of science aimed at preventing, detecting and treating blood cancers. These grants recognize scientists whose work will contribute to the tremendous momentum in blood cancer research and yield groundbreaking results in treating patients and extending lives.
Canadian Blood Cancer Researchers, new and established, are invited to submit proposals for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada (LLSC) Operating Grants.
