CCLG biological study pilot grants

CCLG biological study pilot grants fund novel research studies into childhood cancer.

The studies we fund through this scheme must make use of samples from the CCLG Tissue Bank, a vital resource for childhood cancer researchers which ensures that sufficient tissue samples of these rare diseases are available to conduct meaningful research. The aim of the pilot grants is to enable researchers to obtain preliminary data that will lead onto more extensive research projects.

In our 2012 round of biological study pilot grants, we funded projects looking at high risk neuroblastoma, malignant rhabdoid tumours and a study into a range of paediatric tumours.

In our 2014 round of biological study pilot grants, we funded projects looking at high risk neuroblastoma, hepatoblastoma and craniopharyngioma.

Special Named Funds

Many of our tumour-specific research projects are funded by our Special Named Funds. These funds allow families to raise funds to support a specific area of our work, for example research into the type of cancer that affected their child.
