Fight Cancer Foundation is proud of our longstanding partnership with Melbourne Health and The Royal Melbourne Hospital to fund translational research into blood disorders.
Cancers of the blood – leukaemias, lymphomas and multiple myeloma – affect people of all ages and are one of the largest causes of cancer death in Australia. The ongoing translation of laboratory and clinical research to clinical practice and policy creates better patient outcomes.
Researchers working at The Royal Melbourne Hospital are dedicated to finding the answers to the infinite questions raised by cancer. Their work at the ACRF Translational Haematological Laboratory paves the way by applying basic science knowledge to samples of patients to create new treatment pathways.
Our commitment to the fight against cancer
The Fight Cancer Foundation PhD Scholarship is awarded each year to the most outstanding research proposal into haematological cancer, as assessed by a panel of eminent research scientists from the Parkville precinct.
Fight Cancer Foundation also provides three Grants-In-Aid each year to support blood cancer projects through our partnership with The Royal Melbourne Hospital.
