Institute for Cancer Vaccines and Immunotherapy: ICVIUnit 15, Abbeville Mews, 88 Clapham Park Road, London SW4 7BX
In 1994, St George’s Hospital launched a fundraising appeal to finance the building of facilities for cancer vaccine research and to allow Professor Dalgleish to do clinical trials for a vaccine in malignant melanoma, which had only been available in the USA. The target – £500,000 – was reached in 1996 and the subsequent research showed great promise, but by 2000 it was clear additional funds were required to continue the work.
