October the 8th 2017 Royal Parks Half marathon

This year we have been asked by the research team to supply a  Capillary fragment analyser. It is a device that will allow them to rapidly and simultaneously assess the quality of biological material that we isolate from hundreds of individual single cancer cells before doing complex and expensive downstream experiments. It’s basically a very big time saver (saving them  hundreds of man-hours per annum)

We need to raise this year £32,700. 00 so we ask that as normal to reserve your place you send a cheque to Cure cancer at ucl to 1 Aylmer Close, Stanmore, Middx. HA7 3EQ FOR £135 , and then raise for us upwards of  £350 pp

Many thanks for your continued support with you all we would struggle each year to fulfil the research teams list.
