On Wednesday, November 29th, Jeremy Ingham, a remarkable 22 year old who is passionate about scientific research and finding a cure for cancer, made a personal gift to the IWK Foundation to establish the Jeremy Ingham Cancer Research Trust. Jeremy’s sole purpose for establishing the trust is to enable undergraduate science students the opportunity to apply for a studentship in research so they are afforded the opportunity to gain experience and exposure to research during their undergraduate degree.
The Jeremy Ingham Cancer Research Award will be awarded to a top undergraduate student in Atlantic Canada engaged in cancer research and fulfilling Jeremy’s dream of improving the outcome for patients and particularly children and young adults with cancer. The Beatrice Hunter Cancer Research Institute will manage the call for applications and scientific vetting of the studentship every year.
For cheque donations, please make the cheque payable to the 'IWK Foundation' and indicate the donation is for the Jeremy Ingham Cancer Research Trust on the cheque's memo line.
