Support now and you can be part of the next ground-breaking advancement in Leukaemia Research.

The Paul O’Gorman Leukaemia Research Centre is part of the University of Glasgow’s Institute of Cancer Sciences. Opened in 2008, following the support of over 1800 supporters and the collaboration of the University of Glasgow and Blood Cancer UK, the centre is at the forefront of Leukaemia Research. The state of the art facility incorporates the latest research technologies required to perform basic, translational and clinical research. With close connections to the Beatson Institute for Cancer Research and clinical departments of the Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre it benefits from world class collaboration.

For centuries Glasgow’s researchers and scientists have helped shape the world with their ideas and innovations. People like you have supported the greatest minds to achieve the impossible – and it can continue to do so. Your support will help researchers look in to the haemopoietic (blood) stem cell which is weakened to cause many different forms of leukaemia. Our staff and students perform research to identify novel therapeutic targets for leukaemia and translate these laboratory findings into new effective medicines for patients.

Supporting Leukaemia research puts you right here in the lab with us. Our success is thanks to your support, any gift big or small helps us get one step further to finding a cure.

 “2020 has been a strange and often difficult year for most people. We have all had to adapt our lives, our way of working, and adjust to limited socialising with family and friends. This has been particularly difficult for blood cancer patients, many of whom have had to shield and take additional precautions since March; our thoughts are with them. 

Understandably, COVID has led to a huge reduction in support which has had a big impact on the research we are able to do, in terms of funding both staff and equipment. We know we are not alone in this. However we are back in our labs and we are doing everything we can to make up for this time. We know with your support we can continue the incredible, life changing research we do here. Thank you, for always supporting our progress.” - Professor Mhairi Copland, Professor of Translational Haematology and Honorary Consultant, Director of the Paul O'Gorman Leukaemia Research Centre and Head of Experimental Haematology.
