of Cancer Studies, University of Birmingham, West Midlands
chose the University of Birmingham, Institute of Cancer Studies
to benefit from a donation as we wanted to make a difference
locally in research into cancer. By visiting the University
and meeting with Professor Young we have also been able to see
what the donation has bought and how it is being used. Our visits
to the Institute with Professor Young are very interesting and
we have always left feeling hopeful, very positive and enthusiastic
about the research they are involved in. We are very proud and
delighted to be able to help in some small but significant way.
In 2002 the Institute received a donation for £15,000
to enable them to purchase a microscope with a digital camera.
Professor Lawrence Young has kindly supplied us with an update
on how the microscope has helped in the research work undertaken
at the University and also included some photos taken with
As Rosie supported Cancer Research we thought it appropriate,
being the 5th anniversary and what would have been her 21st
birthday year, to make another donation to the University
of Birmingham. The donation would help towards the cost of
a Microarray analysis machine. Professor Lawrence Young explains
how the machine works and the benefits to patients. The photos
show the present machine.
