Topic of Cancer is an award-winning Surrey based charity supporting Immunotherapy, a cancer treatment that is saving lives and bringing hope for a better future.

The Leica Automated Stainer ....We did it, we've met our fundraising target!

We're delighted to announce the fantastic news that we have raised sufficient funds to buy the Leica Bond Automated Research Stainer for the research team at the University of Surrey. Dr Nicola Annels, Senior Research Fellow, managed to source a display model at a reduced price of £97,000, at a saving of £24,000!  It is now in the laboratories and staff are being trained to use it.

It currently takes a scientist 3 days to do what this machine can automate in a matter of hours, freeing up valuable resources. This machine assists researchers in the staining of tumours by completing the work far more quickly.

This is the largest sum of money we have ever donated and we could not have done it without your support and we cant thank you enough.

We did it!




Support Groups




Topic of Cancer was awarded “Cancer Immunotherapy Support Charity of the Year 2020” by the UK Enterprise Board.

Topic of Cancer is a very personal organisation. Unlike many larger charities and fundraisers, our donors and supporters know exactly where every penny is spent. Furthermore, immunotherapy research is so unique, the research centres so few in the UK, donors can become familiar with the names of those actually performing the research.
