Bournemouth Leukaemia Fund

BLF new logo

Bournemouth Leukaemia Fund was set up in 1984 by the late Professor Terry Hamblin and Professor David Oscier to support the Royal Bournemouth Hospital's Molecular Haematology research laboratory's work into the causes and management of leukaemia and other blood cancers.

Professor Oscier has handed over the mantle to doctors Renata Walewska and Helen McCarthy to lead the laboratory's dedicated doctors and scientists who have gained world-wide recognition within medical circles, as well as benefiting local patients having treatment for blood disorders. Money raised by the charity is used to fund scientific staff, equipment, reagents and the costs of publishing scientific papers.
