The University of Cambridge Department of Haematology provides education and carrying out research into medical aspects of haemotology including: haematopoiesis and leukaemia, transfusion medicine, and structural medicine and thrombosis.
We aim to deliver the best possible treatments for patients, provide a world class centre of excellence for laboratory and clinical research and an education programme producing forefront haematological clinicians and research scientists.
The support we receive from various UK Government Research Councils, the National Institute for Health Research, the National Institutes of Health, local, national and international charities and bequests all help us toward these aims (including research into leukaemia and other blood cancers).
Cambridge owes its world-leading excellence in research and teaching to the generosity of its supporters. Our history is synonymous with a history of far-sighted benefaction, and the same is as true today as it has ever been.
