Universities in the South are pioneering a brand new way to learn. Why go to lectures if your lectures can come to you?
A 14-year-old boy from Hampshire has earned a place on an Economics degree course at the University of Southampton.
The University of Southampton has received the single biggest donation in their history from an anonymous donor.
Cancer Research UK scientists from the University of Southampton say there is new hope in the fight against childhood cancer. They have said they are seeing positive results in a pre-clinical trial that could bring treatments for a particular form of childhood cancer closer to reality.
Their study published in 'Clinical Cancer Research' has found that two antibodies developed by the Hampshire team help to boost the immune system to fight neuroblastoma - a form of childhood cancer which grows from undeveloped tissue of the nervous system.
Dr Juliet Gray, Senior Lecturer in Paediatric Oncology said: "Although this work is still at a pre-clinical stage, we hope it has enabled us to identify a way that we can provide effective immunotherapy treatment against neuroblastoma.
"More research is needed to understand how these antibodies work and how they should be used to treat neuroblastoma.
"Six out of ten children with neuroblastoma can be successfully treated with conventional chemotherapy.
"But for those children who don't respond well to this treatment, immunotherapy could become a vital new treatment option.".
WEATHER UPDATE: Normal services resume tomorrow - exams continue as scheduled. Please take care on the icy ground.
The fight against cancer has been given a major boost - with an anonymous donation of £10million to a research team in the South.
The scientists - based at the General Hospital in Southampton - will use the money to develop their work in cancer immunology. Which is - using the power of the body's immune system - to fight tumours. Experts say it's already showing very positive signs.
The money means they can expand the team and build new facilities at Southampton - and speed up their research. Click below for Andrew Pate's full report
The University of Southampton has received a £10 million pound donation from an anonymous donor to further its research into the causes of cancer. Cancer Research UK say they have also received a donation of £10 million from the same anonymous donor, the biggest single donation in their history.
