Major contribution to Southampton’s world-leading Centre for Cancer Immunology

Date: 13/08/2015

The University of Southampton has taken another significant step to help realise its goal of building a new world-leading research centre in cancer immunology and immunotherapy.

A £480,000 gift, to build immunomonitoring laboratories in the new Centre, has been given by the Wolfson Foundation in recognition of the University’s essential role in translating the work of researchers in the laboratory into direct treatments for people with cancer. The Wolfson Foundation is a charity that awards grants to support and promote excellence across the UK.

The gift will directly support the University’s public campaign to raise £25m to build a new Centre for Cancer Immunology based at Southampton General Hospital. Thanks to significant gifts such as this, the University is over halfway to its target and planning the Centre with confidence.

The new Centre, the first of its kind in the UK, will build on the University’s global reputation for ground-breaking research in this area, enabling it to accelerate the development of immunotherapy treatments and deliver cures for cancer more effectively and quickly.
