We will accelerate cures for all brain tumours

Research is our highest priority, because it’s research that will propel the most powerful change for everyone diagnosed with a brain tumour – now and in the future. We’ll continue to focus our funding on areas that will have the biggest impact for the brain tumour community, collaborating across borders and disciplines.
