Cancer Research & Genetics UK are donating £10,000 to Glasgow University in Scotland to buy a Luminescence Plate Reader – for the Institute of Cancer Sciences department. Dr Fiona Thomson has provided some information about this equipment and how the donation will help:

“Our research aims to develop novel anti-cancer agents through clinical trials in patients and this donation will help support our efforts to develop better cancer treatments. Specifically, the funds will contribute towards the purchase of a piece of equipment, called a luminescence plate reader, that will be used to help measure the effectiveness of novel drugs which are being testing in pancreatic cancer patients. We are hoping that this new drug, when used alongside chemotherapy and radiotherapy, will improve the care and treatment of pancreatic cancer patients.”
