Team Verrico has focused on two research projects so far.
The first is at the University of Sheffield, where funds raised have been assigned to an individual PHD student who complete doctorate research into cancer and cutting edge treatments for the disease. (The DNA replication and repair group via David Meadows Development Officer, Legacies and Individual Giving, The University of Sheffield.)
The second project is that run by Professor Stebbing at Imperial College London, to further fund his ground breaking research into Triple Negative Breast Cancer. (Professor Justin Stebbings, Faculty of Medicine, Department of Surgery & Cancer, Imperal College London).
As of one the key principles Team Verrico seeks 'to advance the education of the general public in all areas relating to the Triple Negative breast cancer condition'. Funds are utilised to further this objective through supporting the publication of research in the area of triple negative breast cancer and through producing informative films and events to raise awareness of the disease.
Team Verrico seeks to help ‘To promote and protect the physical and mental health of sufferers and their families of particularly lethal medical conditions’. Team Verrico hopes to raise awareness of these individual fights and wherever possible provide assistance and encouragement as far as it can under charity commission rules.
All donations are allocated according to need, at the absolute discretion of the trustees and in accordance with charity law.
