Institute of cancer Research

We have donated £30,000 to support the work of Dr Kevin Harrington and his team at the Institute of Cancer Research.

Dr Kevin Harrington is also an honorary consultant at the Royal Marsden. He specialises in developing new treatments using viruses that selectively destroy cancer cells and which are able to grow in, and kill cancer cells, but not normal cells.

The virus therapies developed are generally given in combination with standard anti-cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy. His research has shown that some viruses can make cancer cells more sensitive to radiation while the radiation may also favorably alter the effect of some viruses on cancer cells.
