CCLG aims to fund world-class research into the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and consequences, including late effects, of childhood cancers.
In 2015, we launched our first research strategy which outlines our exciting plans to significantly increase our funding of research.
We have identified a broad variety of research which we will consider funding and we also aim to fill the ‘gap’ in available research funding.
CCLG will fund research projects that will:
- Broaden and deepen knowledge of childhood cancer
- Assist in transferring research progress from the laboratory to clinical practice
- May improve treatment or patient care in the short, medium or long term
- Investigate the long-term effects of treatment with an aim to reduce these
We recognise the importance of international collaboration in planning and undertaking research in childhood cancer and applications are particularly welcomed from collaborative research proposals.
Our unique position as both a funder of research and the professional body for childhood cancers puts us in a strong position to help share and disseminate information among the relevant clinical and scientific communities, as well as through our invaluable network of parents and families.
