Campod (CAMBRIDGE FUND FOR THE PREVENTION OF DISEASE) raises money to provide researchers at the University of Cambridge, Department of Pathology with vital high tech equipment. Where possible, we target funds at researchers at an early stage in their work and for innovative work unlikely to have access to alternative funding. The Department has a unique interdisciplinary approach. Research groups focused on cancer, infection, immunity and cell injury collaborate to reach greater understanding of disease. Our successes include new treatments for leukaemia and multiple sclerosis and a vaccine to protect against the papillomavirus that causes cervical cancer. Our current research programme includes: Breast, ovary, cervix, bowel and brain cancer, leukaemia, lymphoma, degenerative brain diseases, infections (influenza, MRSA, toxoplasmosis, parasitic diseases of the developing world – schistosomiasis (bilharzia) and trypanosomiasis (sleeping sickness), diabetes, arthritis, coeliac disease, pre-eclampsia and bird-flu. All donations are gratefully received. For further information and on-line giving, visit our website.
