Peninsula Medical Foundation

Sustaining a thriving research and teaching environment for the brightest and best in healthcare and pioneering medicine

The Roger Harris Fund 

Roger Harris, CBE, was a well-respected and much-loved businessman in Plymouth. Sadly, he was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2017 and lost his battle with cancer in October of that year. 

In his memory, The Roger Harris Fund has been established by the Peninsula Medical Foundation and the University of Plymouth to raise £274,000, the amount needed to fund 100 days of cancer research in Plymouth. This will help Professor Oliver Hanemann and his team to carryout world-leading research to develop treatments and, ultimately, a cure for brain tumours.

Your support for the future 

The Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry are fantastic, providing support for the health services of Devon and Cornwall now, and preparing to conquer new peaks of achievement through their exceptional research in the future. 

They really do deserve your support, through the Peninsula Medical Foundation, for their work; we all may benefit from it in years to come.”
