The Lady Tata Memorial Trust was established by Sir Dorabji Tata in April 1932 in memory of his wife, Lady Meherbai, who was struck with leukaemia in 1930 at the age of 50, and succumbed to the disease a year later in Wales, when she
passed away on 18th June 1931.
The Trust spends four-fifths of its income on international research, and an International Scientific Advisory Committee, based in London, invites applications for Awards for individual support for research on leukaemia worldwide through advertisement and
on the trust's website. Awards are restricted to studies of leukaemogenic agents, and the epidemiology, pathogenesis, immunology and genetic basis of leukaemia and related diseases. Applications not directly related to the field of leukaemia are not considered.
These awards are open to suitably qualified investigators of any nationality. Priority is given to those intending to move to other centres with a view to establishing scientific collaboration between laboratories. The academic year for these awards is October-September.
