Debbie Fund Research
Inside the lab: the progress of the research. Watch our new 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 and work on antibodies developed by the Debbie Fund team has now been published and presented at International conferences. Test tube studies showing that the Debbie Fund antibodies inhibit the migration of cancer cells have been particularly exciting.
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 amazing generosity of its supporters Debbie Fund raised £1million in its first two years. The more money raised, the more research. Please help.

Katy Phillips, Debbie's elder daughter, spoke after completing the London Marathon: "It took me a while to realise that no distance I ever run will make the pain of losing my mum any less, but with incredible support, I completed the marathon, raising over £12000, and taking Debbie Fund a little bit closer to preventing other families from going through this pain."Read more
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.
