Foundation financial contribution

The Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute works rigorously using the most innovative technology in order to win the battle against leukaemia and other haematological malignancies.

This challenge will only be possible if we increase the rate of our research and approach leukaemia from a translational perspective.

The Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute was jointly founded in 2010 by the Josep Carreras Leukaemia Foundation and the Regional Government of Catalonia with the aim of promoting biomedical research and personalised medicine in the field of leukaemia.
The research programmes and general running of the Institute are financed by the Regional Government of Catalonia, the Josep Carreras Leukaemia Foundation and national and international competitive grants.

Since the beginning of the project, the Josep Carreras Foundation has already contributed more than:


correspond to investment in the Institute’s construction and equipment so that it can attract the best researchers and pursue its lines of research using the technology and resources necessary to do so.


has been provided for scientific research, awarding multi-year grants to promote the work carried out by researchers at the Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute.

Pilar, 60 years old

Mantle cell lymphoma.

“I have been fighting a mantle cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma for more than 11 years. I was diagnosed in May 2012, and in 2013 I underwent an autologous bone marrow transplant. In 2018 I faced a bone marrow transplant again due to a relapse. This time, the donor was my brother. The transplant failed completely and 4 months later I underwent another transplant. In 2023, after the recurrence of the disease, my only chance for a cure was a CART cell immunotherapy. If I had this last relapse a few years earlier, I would not have had this option. Research is life.”
