Clinical trials and analyses are costly. Currently, costs have been generously covered by the St. Paul’s Hospital Foundation for one year and some smaller projects, but the bulk of funds are raised by the hematologists via preceptorships (educational day long programs) with pharmaceutical companies, donation of honoraria for educational lectures given, and sporadic charitable donations from the pharmaceutical industry. Having a secure source of funding for a period of time would allow the hematologists to devote more of their time and energy toward innovative projects aimed at improving the state of knowledge about blood disorders and blood cancers, and ultimately improving the care of our patients living with blood disorders and blood cancers.
