Imperial Cancer Research Fund (ICRF), 1967-2005, 1905-2007
The research section comprises a comprehensive run of material from Walter Bodmer’s Director’s Laboratory (for the most part, papers from Julia Bodmer’s Tissue Antigen Laboratory can be found in her distinct series below). Laboratory papers have been grouped where possible by researcher (with original order intact). The laboratory files contain a considerable number of materials used for electrophoresis experiments, including autoradiographs and Southern and Western blots. Many of the papers relate to the study of colorectal cancer using monoclonal antibodies and tumour associated antigens, and the detection of APC protein on FAP (Familial Adenomatous Polyposis) patients.
