The Ovarian Care Fund

What is The Ovarian Care Fund?

Our Ovarian Care Fund is providing extra support for research into advanced ovarian cancer in women. This vital work is being led by Professor Christina Fotopoulou, one of the country’s leading experts in ovarian cancer, and her team at Imperial College London.

Through the Ovarian Care Fund, we're supporting ground-breaking new research into this life-threatening condition by funding highly-skilled laboratory staff and essential equipment. With your help, we can take significant steps in the fight against this deadly disease.

The Ovarian Care Fund is providing support in three key areas:

  • Skilled staff
    We'll fund an additional Research Assistant post to help Professor Fotopoulou and her team carry out vital lab work.
  • Research equipment
    We'll fund essential equipment required for the research programme, including tools used to understand the way the disease spreads and test its response to drug treatments.
  • Laboratory materials
    We'll fund the purchase of vital materials used in the lab to detect different proteins in cancer tissues and grow cancer cells to investigate how they respond to drugs.
