Undertaking research which transforms lives
Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in the UK, and rates are increasing. Unfortunately, there's a good chance you know someone who has been affected by it.
By giving to the Hallam Fund you could support the transformational work of our researchers, who have designed a bra that could make radiotherapy more dignified - and help to better target treatment to the breast.
You could help fund early stage research into a revolutionary material that could save the lives of more than 16,000 seriously ill premature babies by dampening the sounds and vibrations experienced inside emergency vehicles.
And, you could contribute to the development of a new methodology which identifies substances found in finger-marks left at a crime scene. The technology could lead to the biggest change in forensic fingerprinting in its 100 year history.
Sheffield Hallam is growing an active community of researchers focused on changing people's lives for the better, by searching for medical breakthroughs and by addressing the cultural, economic and social challenges facing society today.
By donating to support research at Sheffield Hallam you will be helping to make positive life-changing differences to people's lives.
Your gift to the Hallam Fund will support project grants or scholarships for our research community, so they can undertake early stage research.
Our research plays a critical role in fuelling change in society. Early funding creates opportunities to explore new ideas that can lead to solutions and breakthroughs for issues that affect us all – from treatments for life-threatening diseases, to recommendations about policy decisions by the Government.
Your donation will allow our researchers to gather initial data and demonstrate the potential impact of their work. This early work could lead to further major research grants that allow our teams to take their work to a level that has a real impact on the world we live in.
Sheffield Hallam's ambition is to be the UK's leading applied University by 2030: a university which finds practical solutions to complex real-world challenges.
Your gift could help develop new ideas that impact everyday lives and directly influence the policymakers and communities around us, particularly in the Sheffield City Region.
