The When Everyone Survives Leukemia Research Foundation was established by the Smith family after their twenty-two year old son Wes succumbed to leukemia in 2005. The foundation works to discover a cure and advance treatment for leukemia by investing in new, innovative research.
To help advance that mission, the foundation welcomes proposals for innovative leukemia research. Grants of up to $50,000 will be awarded to new and established investigators for laboratory, translational, or clinical research related to acute leukemia. Renewal of initial research support may be considered for one or more additional years based on productivity.
Proposals of not more than five pages must be submitted electronically via email as a single document scanned or saved as a PDF file.
See the WES Leukemia Research Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
