The Karen Ingram Foundation was established in 2008 and was set up in
memory of our mother Karen, who sadly passed away in July of that year after
a long and courageous battle with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma , aged just 40.
The aim of the Foundation is to raise funds for research in to the blood cancer
Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma whilst raising awareness of the disease.
ABOUT CANCER IMMUNOLOGY
Together with the University of Southampton, we are raising funds for the research and development in to Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Utilising the body's immune system, we are looking at ways our bodies can detect and ultimately destroy lymphoma cancer cells.
For more than 40 years, scientists at the University of Southampton have been at the very forefront of cancer immunology research and have an international reputation for bench to bedside results.
Revolutionary research needs revolutionary facilities. In Spring 2018 the University opened the Centre for Cancer Immunology, the UK’s first centre dedicated to cancer immunology research. Connected to leading institutions worldwide, this cutting-edge research hub enables their interdisciplinary teams to expand clinical trials, explore new areas and develop lifesaving drugs.
The research underpins the development of three main areas of immunotherapy: direct targeting antibodies, immunomodulation: checkpoint blockade and co-stimulation, and cancer vaccines.
