Adult brain tumour research projects

We fund research into a wide variety of brain tumour types that affect adults.

Research is essential if we are to enhance our understanding of why and how each tumour forms, and what can be done to treat them.

Current high grade brain tumour research projects

Here are the research projects we are currently funding that relate to understanding or treating high grade brain tumours in adults

Current low grade brain tumour research projects

Here are the research projects we are currently funding that relate to understanding or treating low grade brain tumours in adults
