Medical research and education
As well as helping us build important facilities for cancer and cardiovascular research, your generous support of the Medical Fund has contributed £4.9 million to medical research and education at the University since 2005.
Your support is making a real difference, and has enabled us to purchase pieces of equipment for research into immune, inflammatory and infectious diseases, heart disease and diseases of the nervous system and helped us support research projects in a number of areas, including kidney disease, diabetes and mental health.
Our Medical Education Fund has bought prosthetics for student self-study, supported scholarships and purchased equipment for the Wolfson Medical School Building.
Your donations really make a difference, furthering our understanding of disease, helping to improve diagnosis, produce more effective treatments, and support disease prevention.
"With funding from the Medical Fund we have been able to set up a research collaboration between neuroscientists, immunologists, neuroradiologists and physicists to investigate stem cells and the role they play in stroke recovery. We hope to translate this research into meaningful patient treatments and the money from the Diseases of the Nervous System Fund will help us to achieve this aim."
Mhairi MacRae, Professor of Neuroscience
