Research in Cambridge

diagramThe Cambridge Cancer Research Fund finances research currently being undertaken at Addenbrooke’s Hospital and the University of Cambridge. On occasions we can also help departments purchase specialised equipment for the benefit of patients. At present we are urgently seeking funds to support the work being done on the early detection of oesophageal cancer. In the past the Fund has supplied this group with specialised equipment to remove potential cancers.

“Many patients have now been successfully treated with this equipment”
