Cancer Research UK is hoping raise £190,000 this week from its first crowdfunding campaign to pay for three research projects.
The charity has listed three projects on IndieGoGo, a specialist crowdfunding donations website, with a deadline of midnight on 11 December 2014. If the projects do not receive enough support donations will be returned.
CRUK is hoping to raise £75,000 to grow 3D lung tissue in a laboratory, £75,000 to find how skin cancer spreads and £40,000 to help the immune system fight cancer.
“We’re opening the doors to our scientists and their future research projects. By inviting everyone to be a part of the decision-making process, we can give them the power to make this crucial research happen now.
