Over the last two decades, more than £4m has been donated by Marrow and Stem Cell Transplant 2000 and Bright Red to support research at local academic institutions.
By restricting funding to the northern region, we help ensure that the north is an attractive choice for leading heamatologists and promising registrars. Whilst we fund research solely in the north of England, these projects ultimately help patients worldwide.
