Working with our partners, we are developing plans to fund new projects in neuroscience, cancer, public health, children’s health and regenerative medicine. To do this we must raise more than £300m in the next five years.
This work is led by our philanthropic development programme managed by Gary Keegan, Director of Development, CUHP and his team within the Cambridge University Development Office.
We work in close collaboration with the Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust (ACT) and the Papworth Hospital Charity (PHC) targeting UK, Asia and USA markets for opportunities to develop the following plans:
Cancer Research Hospital & Global Centre for Precision Cancer Medicine
We will change the way the world treats cancer through a totally different kind of Cancer Research Hospital. Multi-disciplined clinical teams will join with chemists, engineers, physicians and mathematicians to work with patients to develop the next generation of medicines. These will aim to precisely detect and treat cancer long before they can be seen on any scan.
Neuroscience Centre for Brain and Mind Health
Our vision is to establish a world-leading centre for the treatment of disorders of the brain and mind. We will combine expertise in neurological and psychiatry across ‘whole lives’ and deliver treatments to tackle issues such as dementia, rare neurological diseases and mental health.
Heart and Lung Research Institute
Working together with the Clinical School of Medicine, Papworth Hospital and AstraZeneca, we aim to build the Heart and Lung Research Institute (HLRI). Here, all on one site, new treatments will be created, tested and delivered, to tackle the biggest causes of premature death in the world accounting for almost half of disease related deaths every year.
Children’s Research Hospital and Centre for Precision Paediatric Medicine
By sequencing a child’s DNA, we can pre-empt and prevent major health problems ranging from obesity and depression to rare diseases. This will not only save lives but will significantly reduce the cost to national health systems of providing health care over an individual’s life time.
Cambridge Institute for Global Public Health & Public Health Leadership
Our aim is to tackle the challenges facing global public health by drawing together disciplines such as medicine, mathematics, engineering, history, law and economics. We will take innovative ideas from the laboratory to improve people’s lives by engaging with businesses, governments and international organisations to help make better decisions. The new Cambridge Institute of Global Public Health will focus on preventing disease and pioneer population-wide interventions by giving generations of healthcare leaders the knowledge and ability to make informed decisions improve billions of lives.
