Research Roadmap for Blood Cancers

Help accelerate research into blood cancer in Australia – your input can save lives

The Leukaemia Foundation on behalf of the Blood Cancer Taskforce has partnered with the Australian Academy of Science to develop a 10-year Research Roadmap to accelerate blood cancer research in Australia. The Academy, in collaboration with the Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences (AAHMS), is developing the roadmap to identify priority areas for research activity and investment, and barriers and opportunities for research advancement and translation into clinical care. 

We want to hear from researchers, patients, clinicians, nurses, and other relevant stakeholders about potential barriers, strengths, and opportunities that could be addressed and leveraged to improve public health outcomes and advance blood cancer research.

The consultation questions are included within the consultation paper below, and are numbered according to its sections. You are not required to address all questions and should only respond to those relating to your expertise.

We kindly request your responses to the questions included within the consultation paper by Thursday 21 December 2023.
