2016-17 Molly Appeal for Inflammation, Infection and Immunity Research
This year's Molly appeal is dedicated to collaborative research in the vast area of inflammation, infection and immunity.
At some point in our lives we all face issues in these areas, regardless of age, ethnicity, gender or geography.
Advances in research will lead to better understanding, diagnosis, treatment and prevention for many complex and related conditions.
Please give generously to this year's Molly Appeal and help researchers unlock the mysteries of inflammation, infection and immunity and improve quality of life for all of us and our families.
