Channel Islanders have helped the University of Southampton raise £25m to fund the UK’s first cancer immunology research centre.
The fundraising target has been reached six months ahead of schedule, with £15m raised through contributions from the Channel Islands.
Scientists will move into the centre next month. The facilities are set to bring together leading cancer scientists and help teams expand clinical trials and develop more lifesaving drugs.
To celebrate reaching its target, in the run up to World Cancer Day, the University of Southampton is encouraging people to wear something white and share photos on social media using #WearingWhite between 1-4 February.
