Our unwavering commitment to research

Since our establishment in the 1990s, incredible effort and commitment from our fundraising supporters and the unwavering dedication from world-leading haematology researchers at St George’s and King’s College Hospitals in London we have spent over £3m to enable ground-breaking research into aplastic anaemia and provide everyone affected with excellent emotional and clinical support.

Thanks in large part to the effort of the AAT, survival rates have vastly improved, with 8 out of 10 patients responding well to treatment and leading normal lives.

Why research is so important 

We recognise that more remains to be done to ensure that everyone affected, whether adult or child, survives the effects of the devastating disease and can lead healthy and fulfilling lives.

Today more than ever we are committed to enabling research in the areas that will lead to improved treatments for all patients affected, better understanding of aplastic anaemia and allied rare bone marrow failures, and ultimately finding a cure.

We are only able to do this thanks to the time and donations from our generous supporters. Every one of you should feel proud of your contribution to the progress we’ve been able to make and the part you played.
