The Institute for Cancer Vaccines and Immunotherapy (ICVI) is a UK based charity focused on research into Immunotherapy as a treatment for Cancer. Its principal is Professor Angus Dalgleish.


In 1994, St George's Hospital launched the Cancer Vaccine Campaign to finance the building of facilities for cancer vaccine research and to allow Professor Dalgleish to continue his work on a vaccine for Melanoma.[1] In 2000 additional funds were required to continue the work so a fundraising initiative to raise £2 million was started in order to establish the Cancer Vaccine Institute (now the Institute for Cancer Vaccines and Immunotherapy) at St George’s.[2]


At present, most of the research takes place at St George’s University of London. There have been collaborative and side projects run with Public Health England, UCL and Cardiff University. The subject of research is often determined by Professor Dalgleish’s work with his patients and mainly revolves around cancer immunotherapy, whereby the immune system is stimulated to engage its natural fight against the cancerous cells. Other research currently funded by ICVI includes but is not limited to:

  • Understanding T cell approaches as cancer immunotherapies.[3]
  • Cellular approaches to cancer treatment.[4]
  • The effect of drugs on the immune response to vaccination.[5]
