The PBRU is a highly active research organisation funded by the NIHR, but we are reliant on philanthropic support.  We are highly appreciative of donations, no matter how large or how small, that are made towards research and treatment of patients of pancreatic diseases. 

We are very fortunate to receive donations from a variety of people.  
Public Donation 
We purchased a state-of-the-art Confocal Microscope, assisted by a donation of £45K from the estate of Mrs Beatrice Corrine Whiteley.  Mrs Whiteley was married to Aflred Whiteley, founder of Whiteley Electric Radio in Mansfield.  Upon his death, she set up a chariable trust in his name, which has donated to many worthy causes over the years.  Upon her death the Trustees of her estate kindly made the donation for the Confocal via the University of Liverpool.

On Friday 19th August, Trustees from the estate of Mrs Whiteley came to the PBRU for the unveilling of the plaque for the Confocal.  They visited the Confocal lab and PBRU labs.
