Fund Research

CLCRF has a commitment to ensure that ground-breaking research continues, so that future generations will be able to live cancer free. The Foundation relies on the generous support of the community to continue its vital research, as we do not receive State or Federal funding.

The Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (Inc.) supports Associate Professor Ursula Kees, our Principal Research Fellow, Ms Jette Ford, Research Officer, a Laboratory Assistant, provides financial assistance to a Ph.D. Scholarship, laboratory consumables, maintenance and equipment for the Research Laboratory. Without this support the laboratory could not continue its life-saving research.

To provide our research team with some degree of security, the Foundation operates on a three-year block grant funding process. The research work that has been completed and the work proposed for the next three years is assessed by an international group of eminent scientists and only subject to a satisfactory assessment does the Foundation continue to fund the research.
