The John van Geest Cancer Research Centre

In 2008, the John and Lucille van Geest Foundation endowed Nottingham Trent University with a research grant of £8 million to establish a dedicated cancer research facility.

Our purpose-built premises allows us to focus on two key approaches to the treatment of patients with cancer:

  • Improving the diagnosis and management of breast and prostate cancers
  • Developing effective vaccines and immunotherapies that will significantly improve the survival rates and quality of life for cancer sufferers.

Our team of dedicated and world class scientists work with state-of-the art equipment and facilities; enabling us to successfully meet the significant challenges of modern day cancer research.

Philanthropic gifts, both large and small, allow us to continue with our vital scientific work to improve diagnosis and take vaccines and medicines into clinical trials and every penny we receive is spent on scientific staff and cancer research.
