£5 million donation for mesothelioma research at University of Leicester & Papworth Hospital
Fantastic news! Research into mesothelioma will receive a £5 million boost thanks to a donation from the Victor Dahdaleh Foundation.
The funding has been secured by the British Lung Foundation and will be used to fund ground-breaking research into mesothelioma at the University of Leicester and Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. These two organisations will be the first to establish a Mesothelioma Research Network which will seek to work with all specialist mesothelioma research groups in the UK. This will give a huge boost to mesothelioma research and real hope to people diagnosed with the disease.
