This information is not held in the format requested. The Department funds research through the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). The NIHR does not categorise research studies by age group or by type of childhood cancer.
In addition, not all studies research a specific condition but are aimed at prevention or to improve outcomes for multiple conditions.
