On Friday 25th September, Children with Cancer UK grant-holders Dr David Gilham and Dr Ian Hampson welcomed us to the University of Manchester to tell us about their work.
With funding from Children with Cancer UK, David and Ian are leading two quite different projects. What the projects have in common is that they are both focused on the immune system.
David is looking at how the power of the immune system can be harnessed to cure the childhood cancer neuroblastoma.
Ian is looking at the role of the immune system in the actual causation of childhood leukaemia.
