About Us

The Wallace-Kelsey Research Foundation Ltd. is a UK charity (registration number 1116920) and a UK Limited Company (registration number 05591916).

We undertake and sponsor multidisciplinary and collaborative research projects aimed at improving the quality of life for childhood cancer survivors. Our main area of interest is reproduction - it is well known that chemo- and radiotherapies adversely affect reproductive capabilities, our aim is to quantify and mitigate these effects.
