APH is proud to support the University of Southampton in its plans to open a world-leading Centre for Cancer Immunology at its South Coast site in 2017. Its state-of-the-art facilities and equipment will bring the world’s most prominent scientists together in one location and help boost the development of immunotherapy treatments and cures for cancer.
Located at Southampton General Hospital and partnered with the Francis Crick Centre in London, it will become the UK’s only dedicated cancer immunology centre. Successfully delivering this project will help double both the number of experts working on research and those taking part in clinical trials that will lead to new treatments and ultimately cures for many cancers.
The Centre will house world-class research facilities, a clinical trials unit, a suite of molecular biology laboratories, where genetic engineering will be used to develop new vaccine and antibody constructs, and a pre-clinical immunology lab investigating the complex interaction of cancer and the immune system.
