The Hospital Saturday Fund was delighted to present a £2,000 grant to contribute funding to the Bone Cancer Research Trust last year towards a new Ph.D. research project in primary bone cancer at University College London. The project is led by Dr. Martin Pule and Ms. Carmen Rodriguez, Ph.D. student, who will be looking at genetically engineering T-cells, part of our body’s amazing immune system, so they can effectively find and kill osteosarcoma cells.
The project began in January 2023, and research has started – we are happy to support a great cause focused on finding a cure for primary bone cancer.
Watch this video which explains the research in more detail.
