Leukaemia & Lymphoma NI is the only charity in Northern Ireland dedicated to blood cancer research.
Leukaemia and Lymphoma NI is the only charity in Northern Ireland dedicated to funding research into the causes and cures of blood cancers. Established as the Northern Ireland Leukaemia Research Fund by the McDowell family in 1964 following the death of their daughter, the charity has invested over £12.5 million pounds to life saving research.
Based at the Centre for Cancer Research and Cell Biology (CCRCB) at Queens University Belfast, Leukaemia & Lymphoma NI funds research into the causes and cures of leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma in Northern Ireland by supporting laboratory research, clinical trials and education.
The Leukaemia & Lymphoma NI scientists are experts in their field and with their research they aim to understand how the disease develops, better methods of treatment and ultimately improve the outcome and quality of life for all patients affected by leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and other related conditions.
All funds raised by the charity remain in Northern Ireland.
