Meena Raja kidney cancer research laboratory inauguration

Our partnership between the Royal Free Charity, the Royal Free London and UCL will establish a specialist kidney cancer laboratory within the new UCL Institute of Immunology and Transplantation at the Pears Building.

Join us for the inside track on this ground-breaking work and hear how you can become a founding supporter of the new kidney cancer research foundation. Together with your backing, we can find new treatments that will change the lives of future kidney cancer patients.

On the night we will have the pleasure of announcing an incredibly special donation to kickstart fundraising for the new lab.

If you are interested in joining the event please RSVP using the form below and details on how to join us on Zoom will be sent to you.

Together with your support we can raise the remaining funds, and so please give generously to support this vital work.

We are now seeking to raise £240,000 to acquire additional specialist equipment and start the much needed research program by the appointment of two research scientists.
