Renewing our support for pioneering gene-editing cancer research at Kings College London

The Chatwell Cancer Trust is proud to support a Cell Culture Research Laboratory at King’s College Hospital since its inception in 2018. 

With the long-term aim of developing therapies to support better patient diagnosis, care and treatment, the lab is already making huge advancements in understanding why people develop Leukaemia and how cancer therapies can be more effective. 

To date, our fundraising partnership has enabled the purchase state- of-the-art equipment, which are now integral parts of the laboratory and have led to an exciting new phase of cell culture research at King’s. To continue advancing their vital work with cell culture, the laboratory team recently approached the Trust about a next phase of funding to invest in further specialist apparatus. 

We at the Trust are happy to announce our ongoing support for the lab and to confirm that this funding request has been fully approved allowing procurement to go ahead in the coming weeks.

“The support by the Chartwell Cancer Trust has been instrumental in setting up our new research lab and enabling us to carry out experimental procedures that are at the core of our research activities. The new donation will extend and further enhance the investment made by the Trust in the Cell Culture facility in our lab”.
