The Cancer Immunology Fund

The Cancer Immunology Fund supports life-saving research at the Centre for Cancer Immunology at the University of Southampton. By donating to the fund, you will be helping to push the boundaries of cancer research and drive forward new, life-saving immunology treatments.

Since the Centre first opened in 2018, donations from alumni and supporters like you have helped us to achieve incredible things in the fight against cancer. We’ve developed a revolutionary DNA cancer vaccine to encourage the immune system to recognise cancer; we have discovered new ways to identify patients that are twice as likely to die from lung cancer; and we have launched a clincial trial to test new immunotherapy treatments for bladder cancer.

None of this would have been possible without the generosity of our donors.

How you can save lives at Southampton

With your help, we can drive forward our research and revolutionise the treatment of cancer, by creating new, less destructive immunotherapy treatments enabling us to save countless lives.

At the Centre for Cancer Immunology, we are pioneering these incredible, life-saving treatments. We were the first to develop a revolutionary DNA cancer vaccine to encourage the immune system to recognise cancer. Now, we are developing a new vaccine, which helps the body to fight cancer - and stop it from ever returning.

By donating to the Cancer Immunology Fund, you will help fast track these amazing discoveries, ensuring cancer patients around the world can get the immunotherapy treatments they urgently need.

Donate to the Cancer Immunology Fund today to help save the lives of more cancer patients like Mike.
