To protect research in progress, ongoing support is critical.

The LLSC recognizes that the COVID-19 pandemic has affected researchers’ capacity to conduct their regular research and training activities. Support beyond the pandemic to retain well-trained research personnel and to accommodate loss of research assets, including laboratory supplies and study participants, is required to complete disrupted research and enable new research.

In response to this, the LLSC is offering a one-time competition to provide a boost for blood cancer research in Canada that was impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
