In our drive to create a greater understanding of retinoblastoma; improve treatment outcomes and support those affected by Rb, the Childhood Eye Cancer Trust (CHECT) proactively funds research projects which seek to address these core aims. CHECT’s research grants are available to individuals, in partnership with universities, hospitals and training centres or other recognised institutions, for one, two or three-year projects and are generally jointly funded. Awards typically vary between £5,000 and £30,000 per annum however applications for higher levels of funding may be considered.


We are currently inviting applications to the CHECT research fund up to the value of £40k. For more information click here.



CHECT is a member of the Association of Medical Research Charities.
