Debbie Fund Research
February 2017 update: read here.
Inside the lab: the progress of the research. Watch our film here. See how research is progressing and how vitally important this research is.
Research into treatments for cervical cancer continues to be very encouraging, taking the project a step closer to the clinic. Debbie Fund's most recent work with therapeutic antibodies has used novel chemical methods to attach radio tracers or highly potent cytotoxic drugs site specifically to our lead antibodies.
The aim of the Debbie Fund antibody project? To provide a new means of delivering a toxic payload direct to cervical cancer tumour cells without damaging surrounding healthy cells- a “magic bullet” for cervical cancer.
Debbie Fund Genomics Project
This ground breaking work continues. Debbie Fund researchers have recently published early findings about how the blueprint stored in our DNA becomes corrupted, leading to the development of cervical cancer. We are now trying to learn more about this process, and how this knowledge could help us to identify individuals at increased risk of developing cervical cancer.
We are also looking at the epigenetics of cervical cancer. Read more.
The Debbie Fund genomics project is funded thanks to generous support from ICAP
Thanks to the generosity of its supporters Debbie Fund has raised over £1 million. The more money raised, the more research. Please help.

What Debbie Fund aims to achieve:
"I hope that one day a lady will come up to me and tell me that she had cervical cancer, but because of a drug that came out of our research, she survived.” Sarah Phillips (16)
Debbie Fund is set up in memory of Debbie Phillips who died from cervical cancer . Help prevent other women and their families, from falling victim to Cervical Cancer.
