The Institute for Infection & Immunity at St George's University of London has an annual charity fundraising event called Jennerosity (named after Edward Jenner, alumnus of St George's). This year they are supporting CMV Action; a charity whose work is closely linked to their research. The event combines a research seminar delivered by scientists followed by a reception. They raise funds by organising a raffle with prizes donated from local businesses, a cake sale including a cake competition on the theme of Infection & Immunity and donations via their JustGiving Institute page for CMV Action.
Caroline and Jan from CMV Action will be attending the event.
