A thank you to all our Cancer Research UK supporters

28 Mar 2018

Following our donation (on behalf of our members) of £32,993 to Cancer Research UK, we received this message which we wanted to share with you:

"We’re incredibly grateful for the generosity of TPO and their customers. £33,000 could buy the latest high-speed cameras to film live cells in real-time in the lab, to help test potentially lifesaving treatments and find the most promising new cancer drugs.

These high speed cameras use similar techniques to those used to win last year’s Nobel Prize in chemistry. They can film everything from cell behaviour to high speed chemical reactions to give our researchers vital knowledge into how cancer cells react to different cancer fighting drugs to find the best treatments with the greatest potential benefits for patients. This is just one example of equipment that’s helping our scientists, across the country, to carry out their lifesaving research and bring us closer to the day when all cancers are cured."

Thank you again for your continued support of both Cancer Research UK and TPO.
