Lincoln College Helping to Provide Hope for the Future
Professor Eremin conducts research into vaccines to get rid of cancer cells. His theory is that the immune system should be able to attack the cancer cells to stop people contracting the disease. He is hoping to rejuvenate the immune system’s defences through a vaccination which activates the patient’s immune system generating killer lymphocytes (white blood cells) which react with the biological molecules present on cancer cells, thereby, destroying the cancer cells.
It has been a huge effort from staff and students at the College to raise money for this vital cause through our Pink Ribbon campaign. A variety of activities have taken place from the Three Peaks Challenge and Coast to Coast Cycle, to pamper days and silent auctions. We previously presented £10,000 to the Candles charity in March and we are delighted that we have been able to present the same sum again, just months later.
Professor Eremin spoke of his current work and how it is progressing. He is working in collaboration with colleagues at the University of Nottingham and Kings College in London who have come a long way in the last decade. Professor Eremin hopes that his 40 years worth of work and dedication will one day provide a cure to the devastating disease.
