Professor Magnus Essand at Uppsala University has during six years developed and tested a potentially new treatment against neuroendocrine tumours. The treatment consists of an oncolytic virus, which has turned out to be remarkably efficient in destroying neuroendocrine tumours in mice.
With enough funding he will be able to start the world’s first human trials with a genetically engineered virus specifically designed to target neuroendocrine tumours.
You can help the research move forward by donating to the Oncolytic Virus Fund.
Resistance to antibiotics is an enormous worldwide problem. Almost all bacteria will become resistant to today’s medicine, and within just a few years we will be faced with unimaginable setbacks, medically, socially and economically. Unless we act now.
Our longterm goal is to develop a center of excellence at Uppsala University that attacks the resistance problem at all levels to achieve global and sustainable results.

Help us endow a permanent chair in Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Uppsala University. We want to reinforce Uppsala University’s position as an international leader in research in this truly vital field.

The professorship will advance the cause of human rights and with this, our ability to prevent future genocide.
War between countries is very rare today, but war within countries continues to be one of humanity’s greatest tragedies. How do we build a lasting peace after a civil war? How do we prevent war in the first place?
Your donation will help us establishing a new chair in Systematic International Peace Building to provide the post-conflict conditions to secure people’s lives and dignity.
Many of the questions within medical history and culture are of an ethical nature. For example, how should we deal with genetic data? How do medical research and healthcare operate in a media-driven world? How does an increasingly mobile global population affect people’s health?
Your donation will help us create an endowed chair in medical history.
Figuring out what runic inscriptions really meant has been both a popular and a scholarly endeavor for more than a millennium. Front-line research is carried out at Uppsala University, but runic discovery is now entering a critical phase. Are you ready to get involved?
By supporting our vital research you will be helping to bring about fundamental understanding of our shared history. There is also the possibility that the endowed chair will be named after one of our donors.
The current campaigns listed above will be in place throughout 2013. With sufficient funding for a given campaign, we will proceed as planned.
If we do not get sufficient funding, donations received per December 31 2013 will be made available for research in the relevant field. Similarly, if we receive more donations than needed, excess funds will be made available for research in the relevant field.
