CCLG and Grace Kelly Ladybird Trust launch research funding opportunity for rare childhood cancers

CCLG is pleased to launch a research funding opportunity in partnership with the Grace Kelly Ladybird Trust, supporting research into rare childhood cancers.

The Grace Kelly Ladybird Trust was set up in memory of Grace Elizabeth Kelly who passed away from a malignant rhabdoid tumour at the age of 4. It is working to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of childhood cancer, working with both clinicians and parents to aid earlier diagnosis. The Trust also works in partnership with CCLG to fund research in into rare solid tumours (particularly renal) of childhood including malignant rhabdoid tumours.

We are now inviting applications for a £50,000 research grant to study the diagnosis or treatment of rare childhood tumours, including malignant rhabdoid tumours. Grant applications will be reviewed by our Research Advisory Group, to ensure the highest quality research with the most potential for impact is funded. Our recent acceptance into the Association of Medical Research Charities demonstrates our robust procedures for selecting research projects to fund.
