The University of Southampton’s campaign for the Centre for Cancer Immunology is delighted to announce that this year it is the Lead Local Charity for the ABP Southampton Marathon.
This event, comprising of a marathon, half marathon and 10k, will see runners enjoy closed roads through the heart of Southampton’s city centre, passing iconic local landmarks including Bargate, QE2 Anchor and St Mary’s Stadium. The new marathon route is an exciting mix of coast, city and parks and is predominantly flat – perfect for a debut marathon!
The University is witnessing huge strides in the battle against cancer thanks to its groundbreaking research and treatment that uses the body’s immune system to eradicate cancer – offering patients the potential of a lifetime of immunity. The University is raising £25m to open a world-leading centre to accelerate progress in this area of cancer immunology research. The new, state-of-the-art Centre will be based at Southampton General Hospital and is due to open by the end of this year.
